My father (b. 1917central NY) would use the word milch cow occasionally and
could give it either pronunciation /ts/ or affricate.  But it's very
old-fashioned, 'dairy cow' would be the more common term today.  In the old
days of course, people used to just have a single cow.   I'd find it hard to
imagine applying the term 'dairy cow' to one of these loners.
