Our Milking Cows

We rotate our milking cows so that they get periods to rest & take a break. So, not all of these cows may be being milked at the moment -- but they have been, or will be, a milking cow at Promise Valley.

Begonia

Begonia was born in February 2022.

She's the boss cow, and gives every new cow into the herd a hard time! But once the new cow is approved by her, she's affectionate (as you can see). She's small in stature, but makes up for it with her big personality.

Betty

Betty is one of Caroline's favourite cows. :) 

She has the highest butterfat at 6.1%, is unassuming, quiet, pleasant, and a little shy.

Carol

Carol was born in November 2018.

She's very friendly, but a bit moody -- rather like a cat. She only likes to be fussed on her terms!

Cassidy

Cassidy was born in January 2022. She's the smallest cow in the herd! A great milker, gentle & shy.

Clementine

Clementine is our most timid cow!

Honeybee

Honeybee was born in December 2018. We think she has the cutest face. :)

Her front leg is a bit crooked, and is a bit of a slow milker in the parlour, but otherwise is so cute!

Ivy

Ivy is the dream cow. She's a gentle soul, lets everyone go ahead of her to be milked, unassuming, sweet, and gentle... despite looking like she was born in the 80s with her awesome spiky hairdo. ;)

Kali

Kali was born August 2019.

She's the tallest cow, and a bit timid around people -- but is improving every day. :) She's an excellent milker, and all-round just a sweetheart!

Marti

Marti is the youngest in the herd and her bestie is her sister, Mary! She's milking well in her first year as a dairy cow. :)

Did you know?
Cows display a full range of personalities including boldness, shyness, sociability, gregariousness, and being temperamental.

Mary

Mary -- an unassuming stalwart, gets the job done and is easy to work with!

Nancy

Nancy was born in July 2020. She's an excellent cow: always healthy, very calm & friendly!

Sherry

Sherry was born in March 2017. She rather keeps to herself, is an easy keeper, and is very low maintenance. She's also our heaviest milker.

Tabatha

Tabatha is the most beautiful, but most high-maintenance cow! She seems to be allergic to something in the spring that we can't figure out. She's pretty curious, too, and is our lightest coloured Guernsey.

Tekoa

Tekoa is Tabatha's daughter, and was born in March 2022.
