I got a Cow Share!
Yes, I bought a piece of a cow. A registered Jersey milk cow. So now for a small boarding fee I get to have fresh milk from my cow! And I don't even have to milk it. I am going to try my hand at making butter this week. I ended up with almost a quart of cream so we shall see what happens. I have already tasted the milk at a friend's house last week and I had no problems with it. I got a tour of the lady's farm and she also has goats she milks for cheese and soap. Fresh eggs and veggies. She sells everything from the farm. It was great. She thought it was cool that I handspun. I get 1 gallon of milk a week but that will be with about a quart of cream so all in all it is 3 quarts of milk. But I have been drinking a glass of milk a day because I do not drink coffee, tea, or soda. Just milk, water and juice. I have not had a headache in almost a month since I cut way back on my sugar intake. I eat no refined sugar unless it's in food. I feel lots better and the only headaches I seem to get now are feminine related. I love milk!!!
