My Best Cow and Calf


AS you can see Cello was a beautiful animal.  Her temperament was gentle and she stood to be hand milked with never a twitch!  She was a Guernsey and her milk was so rich that by the time I would get the bucket into the house the yellow cream would have already begun to rise! 
The little heifer at her side was our first female calf after a run of six bull calves in a row over the previous two years (we were milking four cows at the time).  She had all the lovely qualities of her mother.
