The wide variety of small herds is falling unexpectedly with the 3,100 herds with over 500 cows producing fifty one% of U.S. milk in 2007. the United Kingdom dairy herd ordinary has almost 1.five million cows, with approximately 100 head stated on a mean farm.In New Zealand, the common herd has greater than 375 cows, whilst in Australia, there are approximately 220 cows within the average herd. To hold lactation, a dairy cow ought to be bred and convey calves.[relying on market situations, the cow can be bred with a "dairy bull" or a "red meat bull." lady calves (heifers) with dairy breeding can be stored as replacement cows for the dairy herd. If a alternative cow turns out to be a substandard producer of milk, she then is going to market and may be slaughtered for pork.
