Back in July we purchased a Dexter cow and calf called Mookie. The plan was to start milking Mookie as soon as I had built a suitable calf pen and milking area in the barn. Unfortunately it was mid November before I realized that her calf now 5 months old was way to big for the calf pen. The calf being a beef cross was no good for future milking so she was sold two weeks ago to a good home.
Since then I have milked Mookie twice a day and we are enjoying fresh milk, cream nd butter. I plan to make cheese when I get some supplies.
