I got a gallon plus 8 ounces yesterday!!!!! I’m doing better!
I put a bolt on the end of the pin and she didn’t get out yesterday. Also, I brought quart jars and a funnel with me. When I finished milking, I used another bucket for a stool and sat right in the middle of our little dirt country road outside the fence pouring milk into jars. I screwed on the caps, put the jars in a box, and drove up to the house–instead of trudging up to the house carrying the bucket. (Whew.) Then I made some mozzarella yesterday afternoon–my first cheese with my own cow’s milk!
