Milk Man From Hale, Missouri

Moo Cow, I just love your long eyelashes. Do you curl them?

Moo, Moo!
A lot has changed over the years but milking machines still look the same.
I wonder if that is a De Lavel milker?

Moo, Moo, Moo!

Now that is a very cute milking stool complete with a little udder.

Moo Facts.

Cows are ruminants that chew their cud.
What in heaven's name is cud?
All cow stomachs's are divided into four parts.
Cows and bulls can have horns.

Farmer Jack from Hale, Missouri used to milk over 130 cows twice a day on his family's farm.
Little Jack Aidan's response to learnng this: "Oh-ohh, I hope I don't have to grow up and milk that many cows twice a day!"

It sounds like you are from good farm stock. While i grew up a country girl, I have become citified. But I still like to visit the country.
