On and off over the years we have milked cows to have milk for our family.
Right now we are milking 'Sally', a jersey cow.
We get around 2 gallons per milking and milk twice a day.
That's a lot of milk, even we can't drink all that :)
Here's a peak into our milking chores.
Sally like to smell "everything"
If there is anything different in the milking barn she has to smell it.
Here she is sniffing out Zachary.
I milk in the morning, Jen milks in the evening.
Someone loaned us a milking machine so we cheat.
It is a lot faster to do the actual milking, but it still take a bit of time to clean out the machine.
The cats wait around patiently for fresh milk.
And finally the cats get their fair share
