    My wife has a bad back so i quick threw together a milk stand.
    in my minds eye it wasn't this big but in reality it is a MONSTROSITY!!


    I put our two milk stands together. The pin to close the head gates are too high to reach so i made a wedge to hold the gate closed.
    I screwed 3 2x6's together so our ND could reach the grain. the 2x6's dont hinder our full sized goats when they are getting milked.
    The stand is 40 inches wide by 8 feet long
    and about -------35 inches tall

    Holy smoke that things HUGE! I love you can have two up on it at once though. I can see milking and hoof trims being a breeze..no sore backs from bending over.
    I love it!

    I LOVE it! I'll have to show it to my son for a summer project. Between the 2 of us, we should be able to make one.
