    I just got my copy of countryside magazine in the mail today. In it was an article on ez milkers. Woohoo, what a great invention! I couldn't wait to check out the website and order one.

    STICKER SHOCK!!!! $183.95 for goats.

    Obviously the manufacturers and Countryside magazine has us homesteaders confused with rich people.

    Oh well, back to hand-milking.

    Cheers

    Bob

    Bob, I just returned the second one I bought through ValleyVet supply, at 107.00 It is IDENTICAL to the one the company sent me for goats, same sized inflations or cups, exactly, but sold as a milker for mares. I still have one, just very hesitant to use it on any of the does. The first one I used it on has one teat that looks black in spots, and the skin is now rough. I really felt like I followed the directions, too. If I keep her milked out, by hand, she stops dripping. Otherwise...not good.

    Other people swear by them, think they are the greatest thing since sliced bread. I don't know what to tell you! I even got a breast pump, manual type from a gal on freecycle to try on first fresheners if I had any with tiny teats, but so far, haven't tried it.

    Good luck!

    Thanks for the website. I also enjoyed the video. I hope that some of you that have the other type hand milkers will look at this one and respond with your thoughts on this one.
