Day 17: Milking Machine
Yes, this is one of the more important items on our farm, as it gets used twice a day, 365 days a year. We're thankful that they exist, as they obviously help us be more efficient, and they are actually better and easier on the cows too.
We just got the numbers back from yesterday's test day, and we went up again, so these little machines milk out over 22,000 pounds from each cow, each year for a total of over 2.1 million gallons of milk leaving our farm to you each year.
And, yes, the green and blue, along with the orange block I on the floor make for a very colorful parlor!
