Milking Parlor Advice
I bought a Guernsey cross, and she calves in March. I’m trying to use this time to get to know her and prepare. I thought I would want to milk in the barn, but the pasture is just far enough away that I think it would be easier in the long run to build a mobile milking parlor. I’m considering purchasing the new Joel Salatin book for $90 (!!) because there are plans in it to build one, but I thought I’d put it out there n case anyone has brilliant suggestions or ideas.
It doesn’t get terribly cold here, but it may snow once or twice a year and the snow melts the next day. So the more I think about it, the more it makes sense to leave them on pasture. I think. ?
