Welcome to our blog Two Maids a Milking. Just to clarify, we our not currently lacating but take care of 500 lacating bovines. Amy is our "Dry Cow" - after three lacations and Liz is the resident "Heifer." We will take turns giving you the "dirt" on all things on and off the family dairy farm and the in's and out's of being the "out"-laws.
Amy is a stay at home with three beautiful children (Miss Bug, the Wild One and Bobo) and a busy hub who we will call Red Bull.
Liz is a communication professional in the dairy industry and is dating Red Bull's younger brother who we shall call Black Bull.
Stay tuned for more "dirt."
A heifer is a female dairy animal that is yet to have a calf.A cow that is not producing milk (lactating). The “dry” period lasts 50-70 days when a cow is preparing to give birth to a calf, which begins a new lactation period.
