milking machine - advice needed

Postby c day » Wed Feb 02, 2011 8:45 am

Hi all

Im looking to buy a second hand portable milking machine for my goats, which could in the future be used for a cow, just wondering if any of you could give me some advice as to what to buy and more importantly where to get one. I have seen ones on ebay but a lot of them are for collection only in England and as I live in Ireland this is impossible. I have seen a site on ebay where there are ones being sold from the Ukraine by an American based seller. I know this sounds dodgy but the seller has been on ebay since 2003 and has 100% feedback but still Im a bit wary about purchasing from them.

Any advice on any of the above would be great, thanks in advance

Have you tried Goat Nutrition? They sell second hand equipment and also sell something they call "Goat mini milker" for £100 under their milking machines section.
