Another reason I would like to have a family cow is to help with the grass/weed control mostly in the corral, but also in some other areas of the place.
I have found four (4) books available on Amazon on this topic. The one from 1976 I have read so many wonderful reviews about, but there are new ones in the arena, which also have great reviews.
Here are the books to which I am deciding between which to order:
Has anyone read any of these? All of the ratings on them are pretty much equal.
There is one more, it is pre-order with no date, so that one is out of the question.
Do you have a family cow? If so, what breed? Any advise?
Not only am I interested in a family cow for the fresh dairy products, but I'd also like to be able to butcher a calf/young cow for meat. I have read that the jersey breed is a good fit for dual-purpose. Do you agree?
Thanks for any information and advise! Have a wonderful Sunday.
