Backwoods Home Magazine shares a great article on how to safely milk a cow for beginners.
Many people don’t realize but does seem like common sense to anyone raised on a farm that the cow will have had a calf for the milk to begin flowing. I personally have never owned a cow so this was an enlightening article.
The article covers the benefits to only once a day milking sessions for you, the cow and the calf.
