Adding a Family Milk Cow

July 12 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm


Free. (Donation optional.)

Cows are incredible creatures and might fit in perfectly on your homestead, providing you and your family with high quality, delicious milk for making butter, ice cream, yogurt and more. But it’s important to be prepared for what a milking cow requires from you before you take the plunge.

Join Jacki Martinez Perkins of MOFGA for this introductory webinar about keeping a lactating cow on your farm. Jacki will share practical advice when it comes to housing, feeding and healthcare as well as breed options and more. She will also cover some basic milking procedures, handling protocols, and sanitation practices to keep milk at top quality, and avoid foodborne illness that can arise from improper handling.


You’ll receive a link to the meeting as soon as you register.
