Today I am showing off my rustic, homemade milking stanchion due to popular request!!
I’ve learned in this business of raw milk micro-dairying that you don’t want to invest a lot of extra money building a fancy infrastructure if you don’t have to. Keep to the basics, use leftovers around the farm to build, trade for labor, your money will be needed in many other areas (like feed, mainly!!).
Also, I explain why I use rubber mats vs. bringing concrete into the barn.
Watch the video, and then let’s continue the conversation below in the comments… tell me what you take away from seeing my stanchion, and what, if anything you will change/add? More questions? Ask them in the comment section, too, and let’s talk!
Thank you, as always, for reading, watching, and adding your genius to the conversation!
