Frieland LF Bama Breeze




The business end....because a dairy farmer likes a nice hard-working cow with a decent udder.

Jeezum Crow! How's that cow WALK?

Well now, that's quite a milker! But being an old lady with heavy old boobies that it hurts to haul around, my sympathies go out to that cow.

I don't think 'decent' does justice to that magnificence.
(The earlier commenters are a hoot:)

June, sure she can. She is pretty athletic in fact.

WW, lol, she is fine with it. She is designed well for what she does for a living.

Cathy, She looked so nice this morning and I had the camera at the barn...I am kind of proud of her. Some years ago her grandmother had a calf. I always liked the old cow, Beretta, because she was off a bull from my first registered Holstein, and she was very gentle. The boss didn't like the calf and wanted to sell her. I talked him into giving me the calf for Mother's Day. (Beretta was his cow.) That calf was my old Beausoleil, and all-time favorite. Bama is Beausoleil's baby by a bull we actually owned here at the farm, OCEC Linday Fred-Et, not a fancy bull from some stud. To get a cow I like as much as Bama from home breeding like that is nice. I gave her to Alan because he loves her, but he gave me her this year's heifer calf, a red half-shorty I named Cayenne.

I imagine that when you see something like that you also see $$$$ signs.

Jan said...

Seriously?

Cathy said...

They are family aren't they? That's lovely :)

Lisa, lol, she does get impatient to be milked.

Linda, she may be giving that much. We aren't on test, but she floods the pipeline morning milkings.

Joated, I would love to have a barn full of tough little cows like her.

Jan, lol

Cathy, oh, they are. We had to sell one of the old, good, much loved cows a couple weeks ago to pay the grain bill. It is a terrible hard part of farming on a small scale with animals that you have a personal relationship with...
