Our heifer just had her first calve. Her teats are, literally, an inch and a half long. It is taking an hour to milk her, morning and night. Since we are now milking 3, we were considering getting an electric milking system.

Does anyone know if a goat milker would work on cows?

You'd need a different claw goats only have 2 teats. The hoses might not be big enough for the milk flow causing slip offs.
I've put in a lot of systems for cows but not goats or sheep, so only guessing on the hose size thing.

I searched old posts and way back in 2004 somebody else was looking for a milking system.

Do you know anything about Parts Dept. milkers?

Hey Sammyd

are you in the equipment business? I have some pieces of 1.5" stainlesswith the clamps, etc. but need some gaskets. Setting it up to use from my honey pump to the tank (I'm a beekeeper). I could send you some pix (don't know if you can post them on private messages?) so if you'd prefer to take this to email my email is bee_keeper at earthlink dot net. Any help appreciated!
