Interesting  with  all  of  the  depressing  dairy  newZ - - -

Re: BUTTER on $ale

some more serious dairy expansion going on down here in the desert.  I think it's 9000 now and going to 20k+

 

Carousel milker ----- couldn't count but looked like a 160 to 200 hd circle.

Re: BUTTER on $ale

200 cow carousel - let's do some math.

What breeds are involved?  Holstein - Jersey?

If they average 1000# each that is 100 tons.

At 800# that's 80 tons.

Are they being fed while going for the ride?

Times sure are a changin!! 

We milked 4 at a time after taking out the stanchions.
