Miss Molly, our Guernsey cow, arrived this week
and has been uncrated and getting comfortable in the barn. She traveled 1800 miles from Texas to be with us! Soon she will have a companion, an unnamed Holstein, thanks to the New England Dairy and Food Council. Presently she’s chewing her cud in Rhode Island, but should be here before the Museum opens later this spring.
Don’t know the difference? Well, the big black and white Holsteins are superb milk producers, while the reddish-brown Guernseys produce milk with a higher butterfat content. Together they can’t be beat!
