I remember the day we sold our dairy herd. That was 16 years ago. It was a bittersweet moment. Those darn cows sure do have personalities a person will remember.

It was over 40 years ago that Dad sold off the milk cows and closed down the dairy part- we were milking about 70 head when we quit...

And I never regretted the day one bit :D - If I never milk another cow ever it will be too soon....Even tho I spent more time with the range cows and horses, I hated that dairy- Constantly tied you down....But it wasn't bad money for 15 years until the govt regs got too strict....

Im still working on a ranch, but him and I and Cuz are trying to get a beef herd going. I tell you what all this free time we got is great, I spend a lot more time at the ranch with the cows. Even had time to haul 2 loads of calves to the salebarn, instead of getting done milking and goin out to do chores because the convoy left too early
