How soon after a cow has her baby can you start drinking her milk?

    Dairy cows have been specifically bred for the sole purpose of producing milk that can be sold for humans to drink. Naturally this milk has been produced to feed a calf, and for the first few days after giving birth this milk contains hormones important for the calf’s growth. Typically dairy farmers will allow the baby calf to feed from their mother for a few days, and then begin milking for production about 4 days after birth.
