Milking bucket for golden guernseys
« on: July 30, 2020, 11:09:14 pm »
The stainless steel bucket I used to use for milking my saanens is just too tall for my golden guernseys

I’ve been using a saucepan but it doesn’t have that heavy base

What do other people use as the receiving container for hand milking smaller goats?

Plastic jug in one hand and milking one side at a time for twitchy girls, or a wide plastic (foodgrade) 5ltr bucket for others, but I milk mainly by machine and then just strip out if needed. Some milk mor eon the machine than others. You could look for a 2nd hand jam pan for example, have seen those used on GG's.
