I would like to get an organically raised Jersey cow to provide raw milk for our family...are there any good books, website, or other info you can share with me on this? Thank you, Jennifer

we have a jersey/holstein for milk. my husband had worked on farms and i went to college for organic agriculture so we sort of just jumped into having a cow...
we've learned a lot by attending Northeast Organic Farming Association conferences where there are workshops of all sorts-- (been to some great home dairy workshops) i don't know if there are any things like that out by you (i'm assuming there are...)

here are some books i've come across:
The Family Cow by Dirk Van Loon (everything you need to know)...
Barnyard in your Backyard by Gail Damerow
Keeping a Family Cow by Joann Grohman

good luck! it's so great to have your own REAL milk!
