Well a pint of whole milk is just over one pound.

A gallon is 8.6 pounds.

So 37,000 pounds of milk is 4,302.33 gallons.

Divide by 365 days you get a cow that produces 11.79 gallons a day.

Milk her twice a day and she is giving 5.89 gallons at each milking.

That is a lot of teat squeezing.

My folks had a cow, and I recall getting about two, maybe three gallons each milking.

When you said that:

"One of Stuart's Holsteins produced over 37,000 pounds of milk in one year, when averages ran 1,500 to 1,900 pounds annually."

I'm assuming, perhaps wrongfully that 'averages' refers to one cow as in ...." when 'averages' ran 1,500 to 1,900 pounds annually." I could be misunderstanding this sentence.

I was amazed at the difference in pounds of a regular cow at 1500-1900 or so pounds annually, and contented Carnation cow at 37,000 pounds annually.

A little more about Carnation, Carnation Farms, and E. A. Stuart.

Mr. Stuart believed that happy cows would produce more milk .

From the Carnation Farms website:




One of Stuart's Holsteins produced over 37,000 pounds of milk in one year, when averages ran 1,500 to 1,900 pounds annually.
That's an astounding number. Most dairy cows here do around 17 litres of milk per day. And you get no more than 10 months of milk from a cow. So, assuming 37,000 pounds over 10 months that's 3,700 pounds (average) per month, at 8.3 pounds to the gallon, so 445.8 gallons per month, so 1,685 litres per month, so around 54 litres a day. That's equal to three average cows. But more like 4 cows really, because 17 litres is about the best you'll get and the average over a season will be more like 13.8 litres per day. So, that's pretty amazing efficiency!

The Carnation Farms web page provides the figures, and 37,000 pounds annually.

The Wikipedia page said 37,000 pints.

And the selective breeding of Holsteins, which are quite large.

Mom's cow was a Guernsey, and at her peak she was giving around four gallons a day. The only time I recall her production changing was when mom had her bred, to increase the milk production. It would drop during the pregnancy, then go back up after. We usually didn't let the calf suckle more than a day or two, then fed the calf from a bottle with milk reserved from daily milking.

Happy cows.

Well, I've learned about cows. I don't know the first thing about them. There was a family farm, but it was a pure grain operation, in an area where all the farms were pure grain. Some grain farms had some chickens but that was about it.

Ah, but that's the first place I looked... Perhaps it's the 'skin' I am using, the old Classic...

Awesome mate. I think you need to take a few weeks vacation and go finish that fit-out for her. Honey is amazing stuff. If stored in a cool and dry place it will keep for many, many years. Truth be told, the pails are likely to degrade before the honey!

Your mom sounds quite a bit like mine. Lots of repeats. She was actually quite good on Sunday when we went for a walk at a local reserve.
Back in 2016 I drove from Texas to Vancouver Island with my Mom and her wee dog Tex. Three months later she passed away. I will never forget that trip and thanks my lucky stars that I was able to spend that precious time with her. She was 89.

Interesting. It was a very popular choice when I was in the army. I suspect because the stuff lasted for days without refrigeration, provided the ants did not get into it.
Probably the lasting for days without refrigeration thing for sure. When we go to our Mexican vacation resort, that is the only thing we can get for our hot beverages. Me no like it. I now bring a thermos and take a walk into town where I buy proper coffee cream, dump it into the thermos and walk back to the resort. Coffee cream excursion - check. Properly prepared coffee the next morning - check.

One of my grandfathers was from Scotland, and one of my wife's grandfathers was from the Loch Ness area of Scotland.

I have loved the taste of Walker's of Scotland Shortbread since I was a wee bairn...and still to this day.... always look forward to checking out my rather voluminous Xmas stocking, for a box of this favoured product.

Xmas is only a couple of months away...and already I'm starting to salivate for some Scottish shortbread. Geez, I hope the store I get it from , can get it here in time, and their shortbread shipment somehow avoids the container supply ship nightmare.
I love proper shortbread. Some the fake shortbread available is an abomination; what do you mean there is no butter in it!!!!

Yep. I love it too.
Walker's shortbread. Only 4 ingredients; flour, butter, sugar, and salt.

I use one of the dark themes/skins.

I have searched everywhere and can't find it.

Wow, 100 posts to sort through to see if y'all talked about me while I was gone. Putting that task on hold for now.

Had a nice time, Mrs Bob did all of the driving. She likes to drive, especially when we're in her Explorer.
Haven't downloaded the KP shots yet. Most of the time no cell service, even though we saw several towers. Our carrier sucks, it used to go through Sprint, not sure which one now, maybe T-Mobile. We need to upgrade to 5g phones soon, so we plan to change carriers when we do.
3 days and 2 nights away is all it takes to make one appreciate the comforts of home.
