Milking a Jersey

Boy, the milk is good, and lots of cream. Next time the stainless bucket will have a cleaner outside.

After 16 hours, pretty well all the cream has risen. Jersey’s are known to produce this nice cream-coloured cream, and a fair whack of it. Wikipedia says 6 % butterfat (compare with Holsteins at 2.5 – 3.6 %).

    I agree, great tasting milk…

    Cute calf… or we talking veal on the hoof?
