Nice milking stand. I learned to milk at his age. Eventually got up to ten does morning and night. [my sister milked the other 10]

My suggestion is to fasten two boards under the stand about 16 inches apart and cut out one board on each side between them. This will give you a seat that allows you to be more straight on with the udder. I suggested both sides because I prefer milking with my right shoulder against the doe.

If you decide to have a goat dairy, I would be glad to share my experience in making a milking parlor.

What do you mean "final wofati" ? Are those for the second wofati (the big house)?
