Thank you, you answered my question as I was just wondering if it would be cheaper to raise a calf or buy a full-grown cow, I think I will buy a mom and her calf where I live and start from there. My goal is to have both milk cow and meat in my freezer.
I am looking for information on where to get baby calves for free or little for nothing. I am wanting to bottle feed and raise a herd but not sure where to start. Any information would be helpful. Thank you.
