Hi Shannon! I saw your comment wanting to know about goats. :) Do you have goats now or are you thinking of getting goats? They are so much fun!! I lived at a farm for a month in 2011 and learned all about milking, caring for them, and even how to make cheese! It was such a wonderful time. I'm no expert, but it was all pretty easy work. Milking was my favorite part because it was so intimate to have that relationship with mama goats. It took a little getting used to but after a few days, it was easy. My friend Pearl (the goat owner) showed me how to do it and it was really helpful to actually see how it was done. I'm sure there are great videos on youtube. I'm a very hands on and visual learner. She had a barn set up that they would stay in at night and when it was stormy, but most of the time they were free ranging on about 10 acres of land. She fed the milkers a cup of grain a day.
