Milking a goat is really not that hard. You will need a few basic supplies: Stainless steel bucket (not plastic), some udder washing and teat sanitizing supplies, Stainless steel strainer and filter, and finally some glass jars for storage. It is also highly recommended to have a milk stand.
The first rule is to never pull on the teat. You will injure the goat. Here is the super simple process. Secure the goat. Wash your hands. Wash the goat’s udder and teats. Gently grab the teat by wrapping your hand around the teat and gently squeeze. The first 3-4 squirts should be in a black cup to check for clumps, blood or other possible problems. This also get rid of any bacteria in the beginning.
Now squeeze until empty. Some people use an udder balm, others just the udder when finished. Immediately take the milk inside and filter it, jar it, then refrigerate it.
That’s the quick way. Here is a great post by Jill Winger on her milking routine with photos. And if you don’t want to read about it, check out her video instead.
