Cow didn’t kick

From our January 2014 issue

By RITA BOWEY – Senlac, Sask.

My husband and I milked the cows. When he was coming in late for supper one day, I wanted to have all the chores finished with the help from our children. He said to me: “Just put the kickers on and the cow will be fine.”

We got all the cows milked except one cow. I got the stool and the milk pail and the cow was as gentle as could be.

All the sows were turned out and I took the milk to the house to be separated. When my husband came home he asked how I got along putting the kickers on.

I was amazed that I had forgotten to put on the kickers and the cow never kicked. She was a dear!
