Welcome in. A little fighting and arguing from time to time but overall some good folks. What kinda cows you be milkin' down that way. Holsteins?

Sold out the dairy here in 1979 and never looked back. Those cold mornings at 3:00 A.M. I don't miss at all.

I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.

Heya Mike

Mainly holsteins, yep, but quite a good sized jersey population in New Zealand too. This farm is milking 750 Holsteins and FJ cross. Personally, I prefer Jerseys, which i milked up north and while i lived in Australia. Just a personal preference.....i cant really be persuaded that either breed is more economically viable than the other in our situation. I hate pulling calves and calving beats in the spring, and with jerseys, that was never a requirement.....
