Milk Stanchion in need of modification

September 15, 2008

This morning I put the girls apples on the platform of the stanchion and after they had eaten everything they could reach from the side, Maggie stepped up onto the platform and was about half way in when Matilda goosed her!    Maggie of course freaked out, scrambled around and then ducked under the side rail.

The good news is the stanchion survived intact, the bad news is that I need to add a lower rail so they don’t think they duck under.   And I have to figure out where that rail should go so that it won’t block my milking efforts later on.    Not sure yet just how I’m going to figure that out, since measuring the cows is not going to be happening.  🙂
