Miss Daisy gave us a girl this morning at 6 a.m. We named her Jubilee, since the queen is celebrating Jubilee right now and Daisy is our queen.

Congratulations! Love her name. I may be partial to it as I have a David Austin rose called Jubilee Celebration which is a favorite and one of the most fragrant of roses. Happy to see all went well. Nice to have a new calf on the chatroom. We thought Darla was pregnant as she didn't come in her first cycle or 2nd, but 4 days after second, was in heat. So I'm waiting to see and figure out what I'm going to do next. Congrats to all, especially to Miss Daisy and Jubilee!

Our little Jubilee is a real charmer, calm, friendly, adorable! Miss Daisy is struggling with some udder edema that is slowly getting better.

Here's an article I came across this morning. I've eaten her butter in New York's Per Se restaurant. I'm just so very pleased to know she found a young couple to continue her legacy.

That story pulls at the heartstrings, but with a happy ending. That's one of the things I think about. I turn 68 in the fall. I often wonder how long I will be able to continue milking and doing what we do. Joe turns 78 this fall so we're not exactly spring chickens. I'm so happy she was able to find a home for her Jersey cows. I imagine when we quit we will let the girls live out their days here on the farm. However one doesn't know if that's the way it will play out. One day at a time. Thank you for sharing the article.
