Peggy Jolliffe on Milking
Depending on the breed. And depending when they calved, freshly calved cows would be … a good one would be three to four gallons in the morning and two in the afternoon. Depends on the time of milking.
If you milked early in the morning and then a little bit later in the afternoon, you evened the part of it out, but it depended on the farmer and his time and all that sort of thing you know.
Everybody had their own ways and feelings about it all. But I learnt to hand milk, so I was in the Competitions for hand milking.
