I found the same thing with Elli, Charlene. After Gus was weaned it took so much less time to make butter and we got so much more cream. Even now in winter's cold grip, the top 3 inches of the milk are cream consistently. I could see her holding back, so I was expecting there to be more milk, but the cream was a lovely reward.

Thank you, Keeley! That is exactly what I'm finding. What a delightful discovery. Between Elli, Sally O'Malley, and Clover I'm learning! And yes, that cream is truly a lovely reward.

Also, wanted to add that since we've upped Clover's daily dairy pellets (from Modesto Mills) her production has increased by a half gallon, quite consistently. So pleased and thankful!
