    Hi, does anyone have a goat milker for sale? Does not have to be brand new, just so that it is in good condition and working order. Thanks! Lori

    westwood on here builds them for i believe the 600.00 -700.00 range, brand new ,,, which if youve priced around is about what you can find a used, and possibly incomplete one for on e bay ....
    i dont have one of his yet, not enough goats to justify it ,with the time it takes to clean and maintain a milker, i would need to be milking about 7 or 8 does, granted ill be there in a month , but for now its hands only :D ive heard nothing but good things from others who have bought from him

    Thanks! Wow they are expensive every where else. We are milking 7 goats this year, but next year we have like 14 goats to milk, so I think we will be needing one!

    my husband bought a surger, adn we had the belly cans, from cows, he converted them , for goats, just ordered new goat nipples, and changed the pump, so that it surged for a goat, instead of a cow, and we are good to go. It sure is nice in the winter months.
