After taking the best care of
your goat, what else could be better than finally getting milk
from them? However, this task is almost impossible to accomplish
without the right pieces of equipment. As a matter of fact, you
will not be able to extend the best possible care to your dairy
goats without using any machinery.
Below is a list of the pieces of
goat equipment that you
need to properly take care of your pet goats. With them under
your belt, you will surely be getting the best quality milk and
cheese that you can.
Unlike cows, even our biggest goat will be too short to milk
without support. This will make milking it too hard, if not
almost impossible. The first thing that you should get,
especially if you are considering selling goats' milk for a
living, is a sturdy stand to mount your goats on during milking
Since goats are pretty smart creatures, you can train them to
get on the stand all by themselves. Just lure them up the
platform with a bowl of grain or beet pulp. Stand on a
well-hidden place and wait until the goat is on the stand.
Next, you should stock at least a dozen of stainless steel pail
and strainer. Using ones that are made from plastic are not very
hygienic. Bacteria from the milk will get in between the plastic
particles. Even worse, it will be almost impossible to get rid
of them. If you use the pail and strainer long enough, the
bacteria will contaminate the fresh set of milk.
Choose strainer that use disposable strainer pads. This way,
there will be no need for you to get a new strainer too often.
Use stainless steel containers to store your milk as well.
It is also necessary to get a trustworthy solution of udder
cleaners. They will remove the bacteria from the udders and keep
them from getting mixed with the milk. Wipe the udders with your
solvent before and after milking. Remember to keep the rest of
the living and cleaning area are clean too.
Finally, you need to find a reliable milking machine, especially
if you are thinking about selling goats' milk commercially.
Pulling on the udders manually will strain your arms and your
hands. Invest on a good milking machine and you will surely get
your money back the moment you start selling your goats' milk.
Remember to keep the milk stores in a cool, dry place to seal in
