    Is that a *real* milkstool that guys sittin' on?? I don't even know what one of them looks like. We've been sittin' on milk crates to milk our cows for 18 years...... :rolleyes: Do we get a Jersey next?? :p

    Now you see, if it was a Jersey, it would have some kickers on them, the animal would look ticked, and that farmer would be flying. ;).

    If it was a Jersey, it would be placidly chewing cud instead of giving the onlooker the "mad dog stare". :nerd: See that tail back there?? Its cocked and ready just waiting for the moment the farmer turns his head.....
    Hey, I got nothin' against Holstiens, but when you start raggin' on my Jerseys, I'll start raggin' on them......... :p

    Found it!!That thing is hilarious.LOL!! :) My cows would wonder what the blazes I had strapped on my posterior.......I guess I'll stick with my milk crates. Their comfortable, cheap, multi-purpose, and they last absolutely *forever*. I use plastic ones mostly, but I still have the old metal crates that we used with our very first Jersey, Ginger. The metal ones get COLD in the winter.... :help:

    Greeze, from the size difference from the cow to the milker the cow must weight 2K plus.

    Hi,

    I have a 1919 book 'handy farm devices' and there is instructions on how to make a similar stool that would strap to your rear. The thought behind (no pun intended) the design was that this would be a much more 'sanitary' way to milk a herd vs. having to move the stool each cow!

    :p

    I agree, that cow looks pretty big.

    Can I put my vote in on the jersey as well?

    Hilarious Schmilarious!..They really save on the knees. Been wearing one for Years, LOL. The schoolkids that visit call it a "Tigger Stool".

    Oh, I'm sure its handy!! Just that right now my pocketbook doesn't lend itself to handy since I have something thats already working for now. :) Gotta ask though.....if you've been wearing one for years.....how do you sit in your easy chair and relax?? :shrug: :p

    "They're bouncy, trouncy, flouncy, pouncy
    Fun, fun, fun, fun, fun!
    But the most wonderful thing about tiggers is
    I'm the only one!"

    Oh, with his hands in the middle of that cows stomach, he's not milking....he's massaging those milk veins to induce that stubborn cow to let down her milk! Yep, looks like we got ourselves a real holder-backer on the milk up there.....I'm sure its from all us staring at her. Poor ladies nervous! :nono:

    Wisconsin Dairy Farmer sitting in Easy chair is like Ozarks Folks making a Snowman, LOL.
    The milkstool does come in handy when you get to church a wee bit late :nono: and find all the pews are full, LOL.

    I built my own milking stool from some leftover decking redwood 2x6's. Has a handle hole cut out of the middle of it to make it easier to carry. It's box shaped, and very strong!

    That post thing you strap on scares the daylights outta me!

    No problem for me! I use a 3-gal. plastic bucket to sit on. Since it's hit 20 below, it's stuck on till April!
