A Variation Of Cow Breeds

 Here's a couple more looks at Tristyn, the expectant mother cow, and a very photogenic one.

Back into the main area I went. Each cow has a name, and the milk- after what's reserved for the calves- goes into the provincial milk supply.

There are a total of seven distinct dairy cow breeds here in the herd.

In warmer weather, they're out in the pastures, only really brought in for milking.


  1. I love all the cows, they have the cutest faces. Take care, have a great weekend.

  2. ...they have a beautiful collection!

  3. Tristyn really was paying attention to you!

  4. Unfortunately, more and more cows live 24 hours a day in a mega stable without being put out to pasture. Hopefully it's different there.

  5. They are certainly well taken care of, William.

  6. And everybody argues about which of those dairy breeds are the best.

  7. Lovely series of photos of the different breeds of cows ~ thanks,

  8. Hoi William,

    Thank you so much for these lovely cow photos. I was always a bit afraid of the cows in the field opposite our house. Imagine if there was a bull among them, and imagine if it started chasing after me. The cows did nothing, but the bulls!

    There's a farm nearby with Dutch Belted cows, also beautiful cows. I'll try to cycle there sometime. Thanks for this nice blogpost.


    1. We had dairy cows on the farm behind the property where I grew up. They would rotate which pasture they would be in, so periodically they'd be behind the fence at our place.

  9. These look like contented cows. Always fun to tour a milking parlor.

  10. They are all lovely but that is a sweet picture of Tristyn.

    All the best Jan
