Homemade Udder Balm
Most homesteaders have to find natural ways to keep their animals healthy. Since we can’t just run to a local store at the drop of a hat it’s always nice to make use of ingredients we keep on hand. Plus, it’s healthier and cheaper than your local feed store.
The family cow is an important member of the family. This homemade udder balm will keep her comfortable and healthy. Not only will this udder balm keep the family cow from getting chapped, it will keep your hands soft too.
