Milking for human consumption ...
Hand milking requires some know-how from the breeder as well as tools that are appropriate for the work. Milking is a real constraint because it has to be carried out twice a day during most of the year. From the beginning of the 20 th century, the task was made easier by the introduction of milking machines. Hand milking, however, remains largely practised around the world.
