Looking for nurse cow

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Countryside : One Thread

I am looking for a good solid mouth Jersey or Brown Swiss milk cow that would mother bucket calves. Ideal situation would be one that will freshen in 30 days or so, but will consider one milking now. Can pick up anywhere in the four state area around Kansas. EP

Good luck Earlene. I searched for a year for a milk cow. I finally bought a month old jersey heifer. I will have to wait a long time for milk, but at least I will really know my cow! Check out www.thriftynickel.com they have listings for many cities. I'll keep my ears open!

If you do find one you will be paying allot .A cow that will take on young other than her own are few and far between .Also worth there weight in gold .

Ican find you as many as you want. Jersey will run from $700 to $1200 Swiss are more. I work with about 140 dairies and could help you. We are in the Okla. Ark area. David
