Hey everybody! Just wondering what everybody's favorite milk cow breed, and why? Also curious about jersey cow prices in different areas for bred, breeding age, and babies?
That's okay if that's not what I asked! Your opinion is still an amazing one. I have dairy goats, and two jerseys. I also have access to Holstein milk (which I think is great as well). My goats are due in Maywhen figuring out the best option for family milk production... I chose goat. They produce milk over a longer period of months in a more manageable amount for a family, and a much easier to handle animal size. A good goat can be easily handled, cared for and milked by a 7 year old.
Know that isn't what ya asked.
Can I ask why you don't have your jersey anymore? I also have goats and a jersey! what kind of goats do you prefer for dairy goats? Mine are crosses I put ahead from a creamery that has to scale down.I love jersey cows for their milk production and for their friendliness. Brown Swiss are nice too! I have dairy goats now instead of a milk cow and love them so much.
