We are planning on buying our milking supplies. What do we need?
Michelle in WV
milking stand (build/buy online)
milk bucket with lid (stock pot works)
strip cup (kiddy cup)
teat dip (buy/make)
teat dip cup (kiddy cup)
strainer (tractor supply- you may have to order it)
strainer filters (tractor supply- you may have to order them)
teat dip recipe:
2 tablespoons clorox bleach (not scented)
1 quart water
1 tablespoon blue original formula dawn dishsoap (just plain original nothing fancy)
hope i helped!
I used baby wipes to clean up before.. stripped the teats.. milked into a bucket( i bought stainless steel, but a pot works fine, just something you can sanitize easy), strained milk into a larger container (stockpot) then used fightbac.
I clip udders as I like a neat and easily cleaned lady. So if you want to clip you'll need pet clippers or even a set of those cheap ones for home haircuts.
I milk into a plastic bowl and dump into a SS pail, baby wipes before and after( I've never used a teat dip)
