How to Make a Milker for Goats

Using a homemade goat milker is a lot easier than milking the goat by hand. It uses vacuum pressure to pull out the milk without being uncomfortable to the goat. Milkers are best used on goats that are not used to being milked by humans on a regular basis and you need the milk for an orphan kid goat. These homemade milkers can also be used on horses and sheep.

  1. 1

    Take the 50cc syringe out of its case. Pull the plunger completely out of the syringe.

  2. 2

    Cut off the top end of the syringe. This is the end that normally holds the needle when the syringe is being used for giving vaccinations. Make the top of the syringe open enough that you will be able to fit the plunger in that direction.

  3. 3

    Put the head of the plunger into the cut-off end of the syringe and force it all the way to the opposite end of the syringe.

  4. 4

    Place the goat's teat in the open end of the syringe and pull back on the plunger just enough to give the teat room and to vacuum the syringe to the teat. Slowly and gently pull the plunger back and the syringe will fill up with milk vacuumed from the nanny goat.
