I got this book to see if owning a cow would even be possible on my land. She makes it seem that yes, I could own a cow. She shows you a dozen different ways to do everything. Although she is partial to Jersey's, for good reason, I believe we will be going for a Dexter. We need a cow or goats. This book has sold me on a cow.
I tried goats and it was a mess... for a gallon a day with goats, I would need 2-4 goats. In this book I found I only need 1 cow! Plus I will have left over milk for butter, cheese, ice cream, and to share with my puppy dogs. If you have a need for a lot of milk, she really covers dairy cows very well. I suggest this book BEFORE you buy the cow. Heck BEFORE you set up the barn if possible.
I really like her online Blog too. It provides a wealth of information on all things farm, and is made up of friendly helpful people who are into farming.
Many thanks Joann you are the best!
