How many head, or how many cows? There is a difference......I kinda take this question sorta like when people ask me how many acres do you have?, or how much I make for a living? I take it personal, because not for the fact that I dont want them to know, but so people dont think I am braggin..... Nor do I want others putting me down (ol Joe down the road's got 500 head, and 2,000 acres)
So I really never answer the question totally. (although, I did click one of the answers given here) I have about X amount of land, cows, or salary.... thats how I approach that type of question. :tiphat:

Well, I certainly understand that, but this really wasn't intended to point fingers. You don't have to say what option you clicked, and I just kinda wanted to get the feel of how large the producers who post on here are.
EDIT:
How large their COW HERDS are, not the producer him or herself.

According to my wife the answer is 1,111. A few bark and some walk on two feet.

That’s as honest as I will get in this post. ;-)

Still trying to get back to even.
Where I come from it is considered very impolite to ask.

But - we have been reasonably large - 400 plus moms - and very small - zero.

Where we are today. Some know and the rest do not need to know.

How much money you got as compared to total debt on your farm? Your folks planning on leaving it all to you?

How much life insurance you got.

How is your prostate doing?

Got that problem with erectile dysfunction fixed yet?

And so on.

I think you get my drift.

Cheers

Reindeer farmers have saying when asked how many reindeers you got. They say "both sides of a tree".

I have between 50-100. Next year over 100.

Quite a while back I heard some interesting information. Somewhere, someone took survey to see how honest people were, when answering survey questions. They found out that of the people that they surveyed, 70% of them gave dishonest answers when answering survey questions. Think about that for a minute. ;-)

I don't think its the size of on operation that's important, but the quality and success of the op. But I'm saying that as a small time farmer :cboy:
When I was still living at home we had about 50 along with our dairy herd but now we only have 8..they are mostly for me to practice on for having my own herd and to keep my grandfather busy :D
