For the past few years, I’ve enjoyed posting pictures and video clips of our cows on my Instagram account. I’ve heard from many of you that you’d like to see a long-format video on my YouTube channel so, I’ve delivered!
Here is my video tutorial showing you how I milk our Irish Dexter cow, Apple Jax. Before I decided I wanted a family cow I read books, joined online forums and Facebook groups, and watch every single YouTube video that showed people milking cows. Then I jumped right in. The only way to really learn is by doing it. I have three dairy cows on our homestead today and I have to alter my routine slightly with each one. You won’t really know what to expect until you have your own cow to work with.
In this video, I share with you our current morning milking routine and how I filter, cool, and store the milk. If you’d like to see more farm/homestead instructional videos let me know in the comments below!
