I do not see how anyone could flip through Mary Jane Butters’ new book Milk Cow Kitchen: “cow” girl romance, cheese recipes, farmstyle recipes, backyard cow keeping and not want to own cows – those big brown eyes!  Chock full of pictures, diagrams, recipes, stories, and advice, this is one of the best farm animal books I have read and I’ve read a lot.  There’s serious chapters like about the business aspects of raising cows (things like zoning) and lighter chapters like one on cow décor.  I cannot say enough about the pictures – there are so many sweet pictures of baby calves.  I highly recommend this book and I can also definitely see this as a good book to give as a gift!
