New Milk Maid

May
14


Somebody’s been milking BP and it isn’t me! OR THAT BAD BABY. I have a new portable milker. I tried it out for the first time today. It works like a dream! I’m in love. More details about the milker in a few days. There’s so much going on at the farm this weekend, and I want to get right to the “surprise” secret–go here!

    Yay for you and BP! I am so happy you got the milker and BP approves. Now our MinnieCow and BP are twins because the are both Jerseys and they have the same milker.

    I can’t wait until you can try the new “milk maid” on Clover! And you mentioned the sheep earlier – do you drink sheep’s milk and make soap out of it like with the goats?

    Where does the vacuum pressure come from? Is it electric? Gas powered? I have studied larger systems in my Dairy Production class. Had no idea that they made portable systems. Wow!

    denisestone-The vacuum pump is electric just like the big ones.I have seen Amish milk with gas powered ones but plugging in is so much easier. Just search online for portable milking machines.

    Suzanne I’m so happy you love your machine! Aren’t milking machines just awesome? Now I don’t know what I would do without mine. It cuts milking time dramatically. I can feel my hands again!

    I am so happy for you. I bet the automatic milker will help you have “cleaner” milk. Much less chance of foreign objects (cow hairs, specks of dirt, etc.) getting into the milk pail. Gives your hands and wrists a much needed rest.

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
