I used to dream about having cows on the homestead. I craved the self sufficiency that a family cow brought to a farm. Now that I have owned cows for several years, I canât possibly imagine the homestead life without them.
One of the most common deterrents to owning a family dairy cow (or goat) on the homestead is the notion that you'll be tied down twice a day milking, but is that really true? Here's how to milk a cow AND still have a life! Need to send this to dave.
