The first milking.

I was very surprised this morning that our Irish Dexter cow, Cherry Blossom, did so well on the milking stanchion. I haven't had her up there to milk in almost a year. But she stood eating her grain and hay while I milked, only lifting her foot a few times to swat at a fly.

I got almost 2 liters from her!

Diana, I just wanted to leave you a note to say I really enjoy your blog. Living in the NC mtns, I only have chickens, but hope to have more animals in the future.

I have so much to learn. Thanks for sharing your experiences.
