After 3 days of "practice" milking and giving it to the pigs, chickens, and cats; we are finally ready to bring the milk to the table! We have decided to keep the calf on Beatrice and milk her once per day (in the evening).
Tonight she gave us 1.5 gallons of milk - probably closer to 2 if you count the rations for the cats and dog. I'm sure she could produce a lot more milk than this, but it is already more than we would normally use in one day. Tomorrow we will attempt to make butter :O)
