Sitting on a cow! Photos from another era…

There’s not much that hasn’t changed in dairy farming… the breed of milking cow, the number of cows on each farm and how the cows were milked. Traveling back in time, not only would dairy cows have all had names, Daisy and Buttercup being common choices, but they would also have had horns!

These beautiful photographs show Nelly Williams perched neatly on a cows back and hand milking at Kerrier Farm, St.Columb.
