Acquired: Worked with animal (didn’t own)
Posted Jun 07, 2014
Have you seen the beautiful patched Guernsey's that provide golden colored milk? If not, you should know that these mild mannered cows are bred to provide this milk. They are very large strong cows that, surprisingly, walk gracefully. It's a hoot to watch.
Growing up, these dairy cows produced quality milk that has a high butterfat content and we would delight in the homemade ice cream my grandmother would make with the delicious milk.
They do require a lot of work, but are so worth the effort you put into having them. Having dairy cows is a great experience to have for a child. I am thankful for the opportunity to learn about them and work with them.
They are very docile creatures and ours were healthy. They had no known ailments and were great producers.
