Candi Johns



A fellow Kentucky Cattleman member called me a week ago. He is an older gentleman who raises Black Angus beef cattle. He shared with me that he had a Jersey cow who needed a loving home. He explained that he couldn't take care of this Jersey.

To make a long story short, we, of course, said, "Yes," and now have ourselves a second Jersey cow.

Love your post! My Daisy's udder is more high than low making milking easy. She is such a sweetheart at milking time I just pull my stool up beside her and milk - no ties or stanchions needed. She just stands there - unless I didn't bring her something to eat then she has a tendency to wander a bit but always moves back to me if I give her a nudge.
