Hewitt milking the goats

I milk the goats, so if you have any questions about milking I’ll be happy to answer them.  If you are wondering, we milk them by hand.  If you are used to milking by hand, you can go faster than a machine.

I milk ZuZu, Zenith, Zaphire, Zipporah, and Pegasus.  First we have to get the goats’ grain.  We have to put together our milk pail and then bring the goats in out of their pen.  When we let them in the milk room they jump on the milk stand.  If you are wondering why the jump on the milk stand, it is because then they can get their food.  They really like their food.  If they are a first freshener they don’t know there is food there and we have to get them up onto the milk stands.  When they learn there is food up there, they jump up happily.

When they are on the milk stand, we wipe their teats with a baby wipe.  Then we milk them.  After we milk them, we wipe them off again to help keep them from getting diseases.  Then we get them  out of the milk room and put them in another pen.  There is a different kind of food in that pen and once they have finished eating enough in that pen, we put them back in their own pen.
