Please share about your milk stand/milk stool, milking area and your method of milking..machine brand, hands,other storage methods, etc. ~Pics are most welcome or you can just tell us about it. Organizing ideas or things you need to keep out in the milking area would be good. I am trying to get ideas for setting up and organizing a milking area. Dh gave me one of his old metal tool chests that has a table-like top on it to keep my milk type stuff in. We will be building the milk stand. I have both Lamanchas and Nigerian Dwarfs. I am currently converting an old metal garage/shed building (with a 3 car covered attached carport) into a couple kidding stalls and in the front area will be my milk stand etc. There is electicity out there and a hose spigot on the back outside corner. Its a 17ft x14 ft. building. I will probably start out hand milking but I will be looking for a milk machine . If people could share what brand they have and what they like or don't like about it, that would be great!
