    I do love my goats and chickens and horses and dogs and cats and all of my critters. There are many friends who can stay at my little farm and take care of all of the chores except the milking of the goats. Finally, with my new little gadget , I can leave and have anyone milk while I'm gone. Take a look

    Are we allowed to advertise on the main boards? Just curious.

    Also, this is pretty much the same thing as the Maddigan's Milker. Only more expensive.

    Plus the constant suction is terrible for teats. It can and will cause bleeding into the milk. I've seen it first hand.

    It got about 1/4 cup (at the most) of milk out of the udder and then it would stop working. We used it exactly as directed. We tried it a few times, always with the same results, and gave up.

    I did a topic about this product late this past winter/early spring on this forum also. I never did end up personally buying it because I heard more negatives than positives.

    I bought an EZ milker works ok but you have to hand milk after the pressure is out of the teat. I plan to buy a milk machine come spring. Im going to start saving my tip money :)

    I have a friend with one, works great, but I can milk faster by hand.
