Making a Milking Stand for a Goat

Making a milking stand for a goat makes it much simpler and safer to milk them.
Cutting 2x4's into 36 inch pieces for the base. We cut 3 for the top, and 2 for the sides. There was also 2 24 inch pieces that helped form the base. The legs are 2x4's cut into 3 feet lengths.
Built the base, and now building the frame for the head lock.
Adding in the head lock, as well as a dishpan for holding the grain treats while we milk. This made a much happier goat, and she was much easier to milk for us.

    Ours learned to jump onto the stand themselves...especially once they figured out what would go in the feeder. They loved the treats!
