How To Milk a Nigerian Dwarf Goat

Milking Smaller Goats

Cy Henry milking his first goat
Goats have been milked by hand for centuries. There is really not much to it after you get the hang of it. Milking by hand does have it's drawbacks, hoof in the bucket, spilled milk and then the straining and filtering of the milk from the milk bucket to holding container and from there to the storage container for refrigeration. 

With the Henry Milker,

cleanup is now a snap. No hooves in the bucket, no milk spilled, and the same quart jar that collected the milk gets a wide mouth canning lid and goes directly into the frig. After many design improvements the Henry Milker has been sold in each of the 50 States and in over 50 countries. It's easy enough for a kid to use and I still milk 4 goats twice each day. It was a real honor to be featured in the Dairy Goat Journal this past year. However you choose to milk your goat, happy milking to you! kids milking goats teach a kid to milk kids learn to milk goats
