I am not having any success finding a family cow. I want a sweet and gentle jersey that will milk easily by hand. Any leads? I'm in Ohio. I've called local dairies, members of the jersey directory, etc.

Check with the local 4h, many times kids raise them as 4h projects.

It can be REALLY hard to find a dairy cow. We've gotten our last few from dairies who were going to cull the cow. A low producer for a dairy is just fine for our purposes. It's just been a matter of calling and finding out their schedule. We haven't had luck with the 4h around us. The other place that we've gotten leads from is a local farm board.

Good luck. I'm looking for one too.

Have you tried asking at http://familycow.proboards32.com/ ?

There is no secret ingredient.
