I've been toying with the idea of getting a few dairy goats for milk, cheese etc. The problem that I keep coming back to is that I don't want to milk twice a day everyday. I've read that you can milk in the morning and then let the kids back in during the day. That should take care of that part, but, there are only two of us at the house and I don't think we could drink all of the milk we'd get even with the one milking. So, my first question is this...can I raise a few veal calves in a small pen and feed them the milk from the mornings and then let the kids have the milk in the afternoon? We would only take what we needed from time to time but the rest would go to animals. My second question is...I found a stainless steel milker up at the family farm. Uncle told me they used it a long time ago on cows and it looks like all I need is new rubber. They have an old air compressor set up to run it. Is there a way to set that up for goats or would I have to get a new setup? Would that be overkill for just a few goats? I look forward to the responses!
