    Monica, of At Wits End Homestead in Victor, Montana (a bit south of Missoula, Montana) teaches Jocelyn Campbell, of https://www.jocelynsevents.com how to milk a cow for the first time.

    Monica says "Closing the milk at the top and then squeeeze." "Close, squirt, close, squirt." Otherwise the milk in the teat goes back up into the udder. Jocelyn then lines up to the dairy cow and manages to get milk on the first squeeze! Monica points out how milking a cow is actually more comfortable for the cow than being milked by a calf. Monica then shows the full speed dairy cow milking technique.

    I learnt to milk a cow last year (a buffalo actually). It is quite physical.
