Milking a goat seemed very mysterious and difficult the first time I set out to try. And what was I supposed to do with the milk after!?! Plus it seemed like there were so many different ways to do things. Milking machine or hand milking? Raw or pasteurized? What did I need to have on hand before I even started milking my goat? What if I forgot something important?
Thankfully, milking a goat is fairly straightforward, and if you just have a few goats hand milking is quick and easy. One of the best parts of owning your own goats is that you can keep the milk clean and feel confident in its safety even when you drink raw milk.
