    This is the system type I purchased February 13, 2013. Bits and pieces have changed over the years for the better and yet what I bought is amazing. At one point, if I recall, I was milking 8 heavy producing Nigerian dwarf in a half hour from start to finish including cleaning the system. I’m still using it of course and on my 83 oz a day doe, she gives me her 41 oz in 1 1/2 minutes with this machine. So with her; I have no time to dance!
    If anyone needs a milking machine, why get anything else?

    Due to an impending surgery, I purchased this milking system to lesson the load on me and those who will milk in my down time. I have been debating on a milker for several years and had narrowed my choices down to this brand due to reasonable price and good reviews. I currently have 6 Nigerian Dwarf does in milk and milk upwards of a dozen at some points in the year. I chose the basic hoses, the Nigerian inflations and the two glass jars for my system.

    There is a bit of a learning curve. It is an easy system to use and my does had no issue with the ticking and pump motor noises once they got over the fact that the milk room had a new scary goat eating object setting near their stand. The inflations latch on nicely, though are a touch snug on a couple of my does. I breed my girls for ease of milking which means nice sized teats. They are borderline for the inflations but once seated the machine functions fine. Milk letdown in each doe is a bit different and it took them a few days to relax and milk out fully. I rarely have to milk the extra into a bucket now. The time it takes to milk has lessened as well. Start to finish I can get 6 does milked, chores done, the machine rinsed out and back to the house in under an hour. It was taking me well over before. The learning curve comes with the transport and cleaning.

    I have a clean room in my barn but the water heater and sink are not installed yet. That will happen this spring, with luck. This means I have to tote the milk box containing the jars, hoses and pulsator as well as another bucket of water for cleaning since I leave the pump in the barn full time. Its a bit work intensive and I am still trying to find a more efficient manner to keep the machine clean without a half a dozen trips through the gates, paddocks and barn. Cleaning the machine, once everything is on hand, is a breeze. My only suggestion is to make the handle on the box a bit more ergonomic so it is more pleasant to carry two full jars and equipment. Sixteen pounds of milk plus the extras is heavy.

    The pump does produce an oil vapor when running. This is not necessarily an issue if you milk in an open environment and don’t mind adding oil regularly. My system came with an exhaust setup so that I can vent the vapor out and connect to a jar to collect escaping oil. I have not set it up as of yet because of my barn setup. It is, however, something to consider if the vapor is bothersome.

    All in all, I am very satisfied with my choice of machine. It works exactly as described and all the pieces seem sturdy and built to last through years of milking. For a small farm or homesteader setup, I definitely recommend this system.

Product FAQs

The 3 CFM pump is perfect for the animal owner that only wants to milk one animal at a time. If you know that you will want to milk two animals at a time in the future, we suggest starting with the 6 cfm pump.
Yes, but you may notice that it takes a little more time to build up vacuum in the system versus with the 6 cfm pump.
