I grew up on a dairy with Holsteins, but I always loved pretty Jerseys. My sister and I had to go out into the pasture and bring the cows into the barn. Jersey cows had more cream content in their milk.
One of the most common deterrents to owning a family dairy cow (or goat) on the homestead is the notion that you'll be tied down twice a day milking, but is that really true? Here's how to milk a cow AND still have a life! Need to send this to dave.
