Portable Milking Machine
Our portable milking machine is the only U.S.-made portable unit on the market. It's powered by either a 3-hp. Briggs & Stratton gas engine or an electric motor. It's set up to milk two cows at a time with a single 30-liter (65-lb.) stainless steel bucket. The unit milks at a rate of 10 to 12 cows per hour and is designed for small herds of 10 animals or less. It's equipped with a small vacuum pump that works the same as an in-line system. In addition to dairy cows, we've had tremendous interest from goat raisers. The electric-powered model sells for $1,206. The gas-powered rig sells for $1,486. (Craig Amid, Coburn Co., 834 E.
