  1. Mostly cows are like young children in that they not only thrive on routine
    but will follow it fairly easily if they are patiently trained. They want
    to go in the same order, take the same path to their hay, etc. The younger
    heifer no longer nurses as mama does not tolerate it. Two year old heifer
    sometimes nurses as her mama will tolerate it. The relationship between us
    and our cows is reciprocal which is satisfying. We each feed and care for
    the other in a variety of ways for the good of all.

  2. It’s interesting how you can train your cows to go right where they are
    supposed to, to be milked. I guess that milk is heavy and they want it out?
    I can imagine that makes it more pleasurable…knowing they want your help
    in a way. Are the little cows still nursing?
