Quote: well we had one... sold to me as a nice brown swiss milker with her first calf just weaned. at least *I* thought she was a milker. *SHE* thought she was a fighting bull... snorting, head tossing, pawing a big pit in the center of the pen whenever she saw us, and then charging the fence... so we figured out how to corral her in a squeeze, and snubbed her short, and we tied a back hoof, and milked her anyway. I figured with time, and grain, and gentle scratching on the good itchy spots, we'd make progress... nope. 2 months, no progress. apparently the delta between "milking cow" and "fighting bull" is "dinner". just goes to show if you're tasty, you shouldn't also be mean going to try that again some time, I'm looking for a 1/2-1/4 jersey with big soft liquidy eyes and no aspirations in the bullfighting department. then maybe we'll breed some nice jersey angus crosses.
