My wife lost a gallon of milk in her car for about two weeks. I smelled it one day. "I thought I bought that milk." says she.

I milked my cow Mega for 3 quarts a day for 3 days now.. calf doesnt mind, he's got more than he can drink anyhow... in a month he'd complain.

I found the best way to do it if you have a tame enough cow is to wait until the calf nurses, then go on the other side of the cow and milk... the calf will make her let her milk down, and otherwise you might be in for a challenge to even get a cup out of her

2 gallons for 5 bucks last week at Harvey's in Dublin. Price of milk is on the rise. But the dairy folks don't want to pay for the Beef check off on calf sales.

She had a Corilla station wagon with two baby seats and essential mom stuff. Quite a collection in the back of the car.

On a shopping trip a grocery bag tipped and the gallon of milk slid under her pile of essential mother's baby traveling paraphernalia. Hidden for over a week, in the summer, of a car.

Never burst. I could smell it, luckily stilled contained in the plastic jug.

You don;t seriously belive the dairyman is making a lot off the milk they sell to the processor I hope.
