147. You're not a farm type, obviously.
Cows are *not* kept in a cycle of birth to produce milk.

They are milked regularly, and like all mammals, once they start producing milk, as long as they are regularly milked, they will keep producing more milk.

Humans, goats, all mammals are pretty much the same way.
