    I never even knew there were mini milk cows. I'm interested in what people have to say.

    *going away to google them*

    easier to handle.
    just a bit.

    a mini is equal to the full version in their mind..LOL

    a mini horse or mini cow can kick and break your leg just as bad.


    but yes, if a mini is treated like the full size version with same care and caution, yes, smaller feed bills, smaller production amts. though also.
    and the same vet bills.[​IMG]


    never had minis.
    I have all full sized versions.
