    Re: nibie question?

    I milk 4 into a milkcan with the machine and then dump it. Biggy when I hand milked was that if you keep milking from doe to doe into a large milk bucket, someone will step into it and ruin all the milk :) Vicki

    Sure you can. :)

    You can even milk more into the same bucket depending on the size of bucket you have or until a doe kicks it over. :biggrin

    I have a milk machine so none of this really applies here.

    yep I use a small flat bottom SS camping pan /pail and dump after ea one if I am milking by hand because it is almost a given someone will swat a fly or something and end up with a foot in the milk. Tho I to use a milk machine everyone is milked into the same bucket.

    My limit is ONE to a bucket -- because that's all it takes to fill it! :biggrin
