My family and I are new to goats and doing all we can to learn all we can. We have just purchase 3 mini manchas (two first generations and one 2nd generation) We are loving them already and are excited for them to grow up so we can breed and milk them. We like the thought of raising our own unpasteurized goats milk and have determined for ourselves that the best way to prevent contamination is to machine milk or come up with a system of hand milking that takes the milk from the teat directly to a sanitized holding tan. I have studied a number of hand milkers (I cant drop $1500 on a milk machine) including the maggidans the udderlyezy etc but have read mixed reviews on each. I was wondering if it would work to get a high quality used (Medela) breast pump and use a teat cup for goats and have it pumped to a sealed steal or glass bowl bathed in ice water? Your comments on the potential success of this would be appreciated as well as comments on other alternatives. thanks much!
