How to Milk a Cow – As told by my eight year old son

This is a guest post by my son Farmer John (names have been changed to protect the eight year olds). Farmer John is only a farmer in his heart and when he goes to grandmas house. But he has a learned a lot about how to milk a cow and on his visit to the farm yesterday, he wanted pictures taken “to make mommy’s blog better”. So, I present his words to you.

How do you milk a cow?

Well it is simple first you wash the cow’s udder. Then you pull the cow’s teats and squeeze them three times on the ground and the dirty milk will come out. Then get a cup or a bucket and then squeeze the milk into the bucket or the cup!

The reason I don’t like getting milk from the store is because store-bought milk comes from cows that are all right next to each other in the mud and they can’t walk around. They poop on each other. They get unhealthy food. And they don’t get to eat any grass or hay at all. The reason I like raw, farm milk is because the cows get to walk around. They don’t poop on each other. They get to eat grass and hay and they are happy and healthy. The milk I drink today was grass yesterday. That’s why.

Farmer John is hoping for lots of comments on his post and would be happy to answer your questions about how to milk a cow. For more info on why our family drinks raw milk, read this.

Don’t have access to raw milk? Why don’t you try making your own homemade almond milk?
