We Are Deep In the Heart of Texas

Nomadic seasons of farming adventures with nature thrown in to include; a pinch of family, snippets of friends, counting our blessings, paying IT forward, home school, and the spicy things I decide to rant about.

4 Texan, others: Mini Cows, Goats

Here is a link for a farm in New Jersery which breds registered mini milk cows (3.5K)for sale.

I just find them fascinating.  Small animals usually under 48in, less hay, less barn space and great milk proucers.  They size does not effect the butterfat in their milk.  They can still breed naturally or through artificial insemination.

Now for dairy goats:

You know, I love all these little animals, mini pigs, mini cows...they are just the coolest. But I can't help but wonder what kind of mess we're getting into when we start playing god with all the genetic things. Just a thought.

Randy, I think the same thing all the time. With those I would think, their owners just kept breeding the runts. I have no idea how it works but, it gives a option for folks with small spreads.

HUMMMMMMMMMMMMMM
