Sorry, didn't see Paul's note about showing the milking until the new post came up.

I guess admin comments don't trigger a notification of new activity?

Anyway, here is a (not so great) picture of me squeezing milk out.

Thanks

Milking sweet Elli.
The nut bag really helps keep the initial dirt out of the milking pail. i seem to get the cleanest milk doing it this way. I have really done my best to not buy the paper milk disposable filters. After ive milked i than put it thru a similar sized mesh stainless steel tea strainer.

That's my roommate. He's kinda weird, but he always pays his half of the rent. And he gave me this tiny ad:
