    I know absolutely nothing about milking equipment - is it in useable condition as is? or does it need some obscure part that would require scouring farm auctions for miles around? :) How many goats can you milk at a time and would it work on itty-bitty Nigerians?

    It might give me an excuse to come down east for a visit. :baby04:

    well pooks i am not sure if the pulsator works! it would handle one full size goat and could handel a cow (extra shells) , even the sheep milkers we have would not fit a nigerian!! had them and did try but too big! according too our alpha dealer you can get specialty milkers for any mammal. could be set up for two goats but need a vac source (have a vac pump that is on the go list too but needing repair) should hook it up too the vac pump and see, have some surge pusators we rebuilt (parts easy too find even online i think)

    Fordie, I'd be really interested in getting this setup from you. How much are you asking, including shipping? PM me, okay? I have the air compressor, what would I need to make this work with it?
