I am the milk maid, Arnold is the cheese maker and he now also makes delicious yoghurt. With lower production (but still plenty for the three of us) I am now milking once a day only. This is possible with goats since they have relative big udders (don't try this with cows!). So milking once every 24 hours, it saves some time but the production will also be 20% lower compared to milking twice daily. This picture shows the daily production from our two ladies - not bad for local goaties which do eat only roughage.
