    I guess it depends on what breed of goat you have and how much they produce. I use this: https://www.caprinesupply.com/8-quart-stainless-milk-pail.html But it still doesn't hold all the milk from my 2 does. I milk one, pour it up and then milk the other into it. I weigh our milk so I'd have to separate it anyway but it is a really nice big pail and I have been very pleased with it.

    Hahahaha! I guess I'm just super old school. When you said "bucket milking system", I thought you literally meant a bucket. :D:D:D:D Those look amazing but we are off grid and don't have a set up to power one of those. When I used to milk a friends dairy cow she had an electrical set up and pump that made it sooooo easy!! It was amazing!

    Sorry, should have said machine milking system, but that just sounds weird to me:confused:

    I used to use a generator to run my first milking machine, the old barn didn't have electricity.
