Now I've Got Milk!
As promised the stanchion was finished on Thursday. It is working out so well! Thursday's milking was a little tough and I was only able to save about a 1 1/2 quarts. The chickens and cats got the rest that had bits of hay and dirt floating in it. Friday was better and I got 1 1/2 gallons. Today hardly any kicking at all and 1 3/4 gallons.
Today's milk. Possibly next weeks cheese!
Yesterday's milk. Definitely tomorrow's butter! I put a rubber band on the cream line.😋
