The Latest Trend For Downsized Farms? Downsized Cows

How do you effectively downsize your farm to cut costs and still make money?

Quite a few farmers have found a novel way, they have downsized cows. Yes...Mini Cows.

The Mini Cows barely reach the waist of an average adult male and the Mini Calves see eye to eye with a Border Collie.

The miniature Herefords consume about half that of a full-sized cow,but they produce 50% to 75% of the rib-eyes and fillets, according to researchers and farmers who are using the itty bitty bovines. The mini cows weigh in at 500 to 700 pounds compared to around 1300 for an average cow. The mini cows are not genetically engineered to be smaller, nor are they dwarfs. They are drawn from breeds brought over a century ago from Europe. The 1950's and 1960's saw farmers working to get their cows larger as feed was plentiful.

There is a drawback to the Mini Cows(Dairy Version) have to get on your knees to milk them.
