We Got A Milking Cow!
It’s been a while since we had Daisy (unfortunately we don’t have any photos of her! 😭) and recently our new farmers on the homestead have been wanting to have a dairy cow here again. After some discussion and research it happened! So let me introduce the new addition to Our Lady’s Ranch… two-year-old Daisy the Jersey milking cow.
The White family, along with Isaiah and Stevenson, picked the name Daisy without everyone knowing that we had a milking cow with the same name before! It was quite the fun conversation and I just simply laughed when they introduced her to me. “She just looked like a Daisy,” Isaiah said, “so we went with it.” It’s pretty providential, honestly — great minds think alike!
We got our new little Daisy from Oregon House, a residential community here in the area. Everyone had so much fun talking with Farmer Chris, watching a milking demonstration, playing with a newborn calf, and enjoying the beautiful scenery. While Daisy is still young, we can’t wait for her to calf so that we can have fresh milk here again! Fresh butter… fresh buttermilk blueberry pancakes… 😋
Have you ever made your own bread and spread fresh butter over it while it was still hot from the oven? There is nothing like it!
If you ever come to visit us in person at the farm, then you’ll get to meet Daisy yourself and maybe even try some of the milk too! In the meantime we’ll keep you posted on her progress and hopefully we’ll have pictures of a baby calf to share soon. 😉
