    Arrow Belnori Dairy Day on milk goat farm in South Africa

    We had a dairy conference on milk goats supported by our MPO (milk producers organisation) on a Saanen milk goat farm (Belnori Cheesery) in Bapsfontein, which is between Johannesburg and Pretoria, South Africa.

    Here are some pictures and videos from the conference:


    Some speakers informing us.

    I've noticed this before, but why do cows use a milker claw while goats do not? Is it just for ease of handling on cows? -- (four inflation shells with no claw would be a real handful)

    On that video, I find it amusing, that no matter the species, they still kick. Fortunately for you goat guys, the most you'll get is a black eye.
