    Very cool! Hey- show your friends the Henry Milker which can be found at this url: http://www.henrymilker.com/

    Might make milking faster and cleaner for them. Lots easier when they get the second goat!

    Thanks for sharing this!

    Bleach is great at killing microbes, but it is very caustic. Please consider not using the bleach on Boogies udder. If you are washing and rinsing well it should not be a problem Also, you shouldn’t pull on goat teats during milking the way you would on a cow. It should be more of a stationary, descending fingers squeeze for a Nigerian Dwarf. Continuing to pull the teats will damage the mammary structures and cause her duct system to fail early. Good luck! You ‘guys’ are awesome!

    You people are awesome! I want to come work with you. I do have to admit that I started to cringe when I saw you put that beautiful, nutritious, fresh goat milk into the microwave oven. Yikes!

    i also agree with Jess about the chlorine bleach.

    At the same time, kudos to you for actually taking the first steps that are necessary, using the tools and skills available to you and improving them as time goes on. This is what we all need to be committed to in order to survive and thrive on this beautiful planet.

    All the best,

    Nathan

    We also have a few Nigerian dwarf dairy goats. I second the comment not to use bleach on them. Most people out here want the goat milk raw, do you realy pasturize it or is that and the bleach just for USDA guidlines for this video ?

    Uproberly know this but,i would like to make a coment on ur pasturaration,and that is ,,,i would  have brought the milk can  in a ice/wather buket so the temp. fall quik down.
    In Norway it is wery popular to make goat chess,in collor it is brovn because we cook the milk over a long time,this we have on the bread,
    But annyway, thanks for all u are doing and  for sharing what u peopel do.
