I have often wondered about having a family cow. We have four sons and assorted livestock but have never had a milking critter. The idea been on the back burner until 6AM this morning, when my phone rang. It was a family friend, a semi-retired dairy farmer from central Maine, calling to see if I'd be interested in a Jersey cow due to calve in three weeks. I do have an empty horse stall (12x12 with a 4' wide door) and a reliable source of hay. Are there any family cow people here? Advice? Words of wisdom? Escape plan?
