I’m excited to post my first video today!
One subject I had yet to cover was actually how to go about extracting milk from the teat. So, rather than try to take a million pictures of the process, I decided to video it instead. It’s very simple, and not near as intimidating as you might think!
If you are interested in my actual milking routine, I have a post highlighting the ENTIRE process (rather than just the extraction part). I didn’t cover that in this video, but look for another one on that topic coming soon!
A big thanks to Cinnamon the goat, who actually stood patiently today.
