NeilO - are the in house dairy expert. what should we know about cows? I know very little about dairying other than what I learnt in Denmark. Poor cows were housed all year round in tethers, and milked in situ, using movable milking machines.

They existed on a diet of: Brewers grains, chopped ammonia treated wheat straw, sugar beet tops, sugar beet pulp, and a bit of molasses to make that lot vaguely palatable. They never saw a blade of grass. It was a bastard shame I tell you. And they were milkd 3 times a day so they never even got a decent rest. The milk tasted good though

What's to know about cows? They're a bit of a doodle really, but don't tell anyone. Feed them & they produce milk. Easy. Don't know why more people don't do it.

Sounds like they like their salads. Anyhow, grass is best saved for outside afterwards.

I never had a problem when Old Sherlock dropped around for a puff. Mind you, Watson was a bit of a prude. Reminds of you in fact, you old fart. Go and take one of your pills!
