On a quest to learn about bio-dynamic farming, I headed up to Graham Washington last month and visited a couple of farms. Among other things, I learned how to milk goats. It’s a lot harder than it looks. You don’t pull on the udder as one may think, you nudge it up then squeeze. And every goat was shaped different requiring a unique approach. Then there is the kicking and stubbornly try to sit down on the milk bucket.
