For the second night in a row Coco would not let me milk her. The mornings have been fine. She has been giving over 2 gallons of milk in the morning.
For some reason she backs up, dances around and goes crazy when I get ready to milk.
What in the world is the problem with that girl?
Maybe it is a bad case of cow PMS.
Maybe she is punishing me for leaving for 2 weeks.
Maybe she is getting tired of 15 months of lactation.
Maybe she wants a vacation.
I have never restrained Coco for milking time. I call her. She comes up to the concrete pad by the backdoor and I get out her food and she eats and I wash her udder and milk her. Same thing every morning, every evening. I haven't put her in a stanchion because we haven't needed to go that route. I kinda like our easy going relationship. Partners of sorts. Pals. Colaborers in this operation.
So what the heck, Coco? What did I do wrong? Why are you mad at me? Please don't make me beg you.
I WANT YOUR CREAM!!!! PLEASE!!!
