This old girl, born here in August 2000, has just passed 100,000 litres - 100 tonnes of milk. I can't remember the full figures but we are soon to receive a certificate from National Milk Records
She's our first cow to achieve this & when she does stop milking she will stay here as a pets 'til she dies.

Well done, she looks as if she's got a good few years left in her too!
How many calves has she had? Hope they were all heifers.
Great feet for her age too.

Is she pedigree? If so, she'd get a certificate & an engraved rose bowl too.

She doesn't look a liter over 50,000.

She doesn't look too large, is she of medium size ? That's how profit is made, low maintainence high productivity.

Does she have a name?

Not long before dad packed up he had a cow that gave him a calf on 10 consecutive Februarys. He then checked his records and she never once had mastitis. I don't think she ever broke any records, but she probably earned him more than the cows that did. Obviously they are not pets, but its hard not to get attached to the faithfull old timers.

Excuse the pun, but we seem to be getting to the bottom of the problem, me and Mary the physio that is :wink:

It appears my right Ilium isn't stood up straight, she corrected it again on wed..................................but for some reason I now know what livestock have endured for years at the hands of stockmen armed with a burdizzo, christ ain't it hurt :roll:

Sorry for the delay, here's some answers

Squire, she's a 10th calver & unfortunately all of her calves were to one of our Sim bulls . . . So far !
No glass bowl, she's non pedigree.

Huffs, you can see a Danish Red behind her.

Mac, yes she is small/medium build. When she was young she would've been average, it just shows how much bigger cows have become thanks to the Holstein. I record our cows as Holstein Friesian as most of them are between the 2 breeds, I bought 10 pure British Friesians heifers last winter ( couldn't get anything else at the time ) They are a bit disappointing in terms of yield, but hopefully will improve.

Pret, she is a cow with no name, just no 9 - her ear no ends 009.
In her 4th lact she had ave cell count of 704 :( so there must have been some mastitis around 2006/7, but her other 9 have been below 100.
Her 305 day figures for her 10th
10800 litres, 3.42 BF, 2.91 P, CC 29
We're on a white water contract, so I could do with a few more like her in future.

Need a naming competition, when she eventually reaches that gt ol parlour in the sky you cannot erect a cross to 009.

Don't bother, when she pops her clogs and the knacker man taketh her away, she'll be then known as "Asda 100% organic beef burgers"
