I worked on a dairy farm milking cows for 20 years. A great experience!!! A wonderful life style for raising a family of 5. We all worked together.
The Shetland is a rare breed of cattle that is currently classified as at risk by the Rare Breeds Survival Trust in the Britain. They have an ancient lineage, thought to date back to the cattle the Vikings brought to the Shetlands Islands in the period 700-1100 AD, after this period there will have been other influences to the breed.
