Whatever happened to HuCow 210, the stray we picked up during the pandemic crisis, where some farmers had to let part of their herd go? Well, she is still here! A wonderfully trained HuCow, 210 is used to being gagged and udder rope harnessed all the time. She is very obedient, and she can handle most milking machines, but there are some things that are hard for her. Like nipple clamps. Unlike her previous farmer, we like to use nipple clamps before a session to stretch and sensitize the nipples, it helps the cups to grab onto the teats better. A little harsh, but 210’s super round plump udders can definitely handle a lot. What she really seems to hate however, is nipple clamps AFTER milking. A fan favorite, so we did it again this session, and HuCow 210 definitely did not like that!!
