You guys are rock stars! I am "goat sitting" for a friend of mine who has 1 Nubian doe that that needs milked just once every morning. My friend's husband (who usually does the milking) can hand milk almost a gallon out of her in 5 minutes. I on the other hand took 5 minutes just to get the first squirts out into my strip cup! :laugh: Man they are hard to milk when they're so full! Anyway... finally got some out and then attached the Henry Milker (Thank goodness) that thing is awesome! So I filled up both the quart jars I had with me and had to finish the rest by hand. By this time she had finished her grain, and was looking at me like I was totally inadequate. Little did I know that I had forgotten to put the pin in the milk stand that holds her head in place. So...10 minutes into my awkward hand milking session she decides to leave. By some miracle she doesn't knock over my bucket, I finally catch her, put her back on the stand, lock it in, and give her some alfalfa that she begrudgingly munches while I take ANOTHER 10 minutes to finally get her udders soft and empty. So about 35 minutes after I started, I have almost a gallon of milk sitting in my fridge :clap: I hear tale of you guys milking a gallon in under 5 minutes...just you know...you're my idols! HAHA!!
