No. You are likely to get kicked in the head by the cow.

Yup, but be careful, those buggers can sure kick.

Not recommended, I refer you to Karen Ls answer, and there would also be hygiene issues. Almost all milk produced for human consumption is pasteurised, that is heated to about 80C fora short while, this kills or inactivates dangerous bacteria, and also extends the shelf life by inactivating or at least weakening yeast spores and other microbes which cause spoilage. In England and Wales, sale of unpasteurised milk is severely restricted and must carry a health warning, and in Scotland sale of unpasteurised milk is totally banned, IDK about NI, Channel Islands or the Isle of Man.

In terms of the safety of consuming the milk, or in terms of the safety of getting within kicking range of a cow's feet?

About 100 years ago, goat milk became a big health fad. The idea was to get a goat, follow it around, and get your milk from it directly. If you could do it with a goat, you could do it with a cow.
Have you ever tasted milk straight from the cow? It's really disgusting!

Depends on what the cow has eaten. If it’s been eating pesticide free grass then it should be safe for you.
If it’s been eating heavily contaminated grass then there’s a good chance the contaminants will be in the milk.

It seems safe enough for calves.
