Subject: RE: When did milk cows disappear from your area?

My grandparents milked until, I forget if it was 98 or 99, Grandpa got took by his Holstein bull and ended up with 5 broken ribs. I was just out of college and back home spooling up my repair business and never got involved with the actual milking. Growing up I’d haul ****, do chores, the feeding, help chop silage, and of course anything to to with fieldwork and row cropping. I showed beef cattle all through 4-h and ffa but livestock just never was my thing. Anyway, after Grandpas bull incident it was a few days later the herd got trailer rides to the sale barn. After gramps healed up he kept feeding steers for a few more years until cancer took him in 2001. I had a short stint backgrounding a few head of feeders, but again livestock just isn’t my thing.

My youngest son got a bottle heifer calf last spring, that’s been the first critter on the farm here in over 20 years. I gotta admit it’s a nice and reminiscent sound hearing her moo, She’s still here, leaning towards sending her down the road soon before winter sets in. But...

I’m pretty sure there’s not a dairy in the county here anymore...
