sort of... what size compressor do you need to run your milk machines? Just a small one that would milk 1 or 2 does. I hate not knowing what I am talking about, but I think it is a compressor. I have the old milk pail w/ lid and pulsator from my grandparents farm that I am going to replace parts on and use for milking some of my girls this year. I do not know what size compressor I will need or where to find this info, can someone please help me out here? They are getting ready to run the electricity to the barn this weekend and want to know amps and all that good stuff. IF someone can tell me about what size compressor I need I can figure the rest of it.
