Rural scuttlebutt.

The IT gods have disconnected The One-cow Revolution from our personal facebook page.  Most of our friends followed the blog through facebook, and are no doubt lost without us, so we are attempting to continue sharing our misadventures by sending Onecow to our heretofore unused facebook page, The Sow’s Ear Farm and Pottery, and sharing that with our profile pages.  God bless you all, and Facebook, too.

Meet Ruby and Sylvie!

Sylvie:  (first picture, on right, black cow; cow with calf):  3/4 Jersey x 1/4 Ayreshire , three years old, first lactation, calved 5 weeks ago, unassisted, lovely little heifer. Good mother. All grass, hand-milked, rotationally grazed. Trained to single strand temporary fencing, well-behaved and friendly. Calf presently on her full time. She is hand-milked twice a day, presently giving about 15 lb. milk in addition to what the calf takes. Nice conformation and condition. Back teats a little short, but manageable. Asking $1200.
Ruby (first picture, black cow on left; teat picture): Short Dexter, black, four years old, first lactation, calved 6 weeks ago. Beautiful conformation, well-behaved, very easy milker. All grass, hand-milked, rotationally grazed. Trained to single strand temporary fencing, well-behaved and friendly. Hand milked twice daily, presently producing about 12 – 15 pounds per day. Nice udder and teats. Asking $800.
Either cow would make an excellent family cow, easy milkers, all-grass, gentle and friendly. No problem with either, just selling extra stock to save forage.
