You know you have a good milk cow if they are easy to train and they will come at the expected hours and even wait.
It took a few days–and fun and games hiking into the thicket after her–but Beulah Petunia got her act together pretty quickly. Now she comes every morning and every evening to her milk stand by the gate. She moos loudly to let me know she has arrived. Then she sits down and waits.
What a good cow! I love my cow.

Suzanne, you do know how fortunate you were with this cow don’t you!
I love her disposition. My Willow could take some lessons from her.
Yesterday, she decided to not let her milk down………period. I finally put her calf on one side and I milked the other and guess what?
I got just as much milk from my half as I have been getting from all four quarters…….she has been holding up for her precious babies.
I got 1.5 gallons. So now there will be a new milking routine…at least until the baby just gets too big.

BP = Smart, sweet, beautiful and productive – what more could anyone want from a pet cow? I think she’s great!

BrendaE–she’s there, don’t worry, just not in the picture. She’s pretty frisky and likes to jump around in the woods just outside the fence (to drive BP crazy, I think).

You MUST get a video of Glory Bee being frisky….that is my favorite thing!!

Beulah Petunia is just so lovely! You have a good friend in that cow. I would love to be moo-ed at!

She sounds like the perfect cow. No wonder you love her so much.

That was supposed to be: I’ve NEVER known of such a good cow. 😕
