I am simply amazed at the udders on those cows!!! I only have a few, and they are raised for beef sales, not dairy, but…we have had many calves born here, and their mamas NEVER look like that! Good grief, what a milk supply! Is it because of the breed, or what? Excuse my ignorance, I am a city girl transplant. Goodness! Details, please!
Yes, you said it! Dairy cow energy goes into making milk which requires larger, fancier udders. A beef cow’s main goal is to build muscle for meat. And as a general rule, a Holstein is the largest common dairy breed. They’re usually tall with nice big udders, and some of those girls give 100 lbs. of milk a day!
