With helpful advice on daily maintenance, milking, and bovine health care, you’ll soon be enjoying the pleasures of fresh milk, yogurt, cheese, and much more.

One of the best books on keeping a family cow I have ever read. It tells you everything you need to know about keeping a family cow. I would also reccommend The Backyard Goat and Homegrown Pork also by Sue Weaver.
