Remember Nicole Vice? She had a really hard time next to her experienced friend Cindy Dollar. Nicole has very sensitive nipples. We could say she is not a suitable HuCow… OR… we could just ramp up the training a bit more to get her used to the milking machines. One of the fun things to do with the electronic breast training machine is to attach goat milker cups (so nipple training instead of udder training) and turn up the speed. We told Nicole to turn up the speed to the max, and she did! It was not easy but she made it! See? She just needs more training!
Our goat milker is a double machine, it can milk two HuCows at once, with the same pressure and speed. We love to pair up our HuCows, because they seem to find support in each other during these harsh training sessions. It’s especially useful to pair up an experienced (docile) HuCow like Cindy with a relatively new HuCow like Nicole. This way Nicole can learn that it is possible to get completely used to milking sessions, even if it still hurts her a lot at the moment. The difference is very visible when we apply the cups: Nicole’s pain face versus Cindy who does not even flinch. This is a dual machine, with the exact same vacuum power and speed. Cindy is used to getting milked while Nicole tries to deal with it. Poor Cindy can’t hug her friend until after the session, because they are both chained by the neck and handcuffed. It’s a very hard session for Nicole, her nipples are very sensitive and the machine doubles them in size! But there’s good news too: Nicole has started to lactate already!!
One girl we definitely had to get back (from our humble beginnings in January 2015) is the awesome Cindy Dollar, who got milked by the goat milker when no one really knew what that machine could do. She’s so brave! Today, she still looks awesome with juicy udders, and better yet, she has a friend who has great udders too! Together, they will be milked by the powerful red cow milker (4 boobs are perfect for the cow milker). These two friends are tough, they don’t want to let us know it really hurts a lot, so they are trying to keep a straight face. I even turned the speed up during milking, but these girls are hardy HuCows, they can take a lot! Very promising, and so great to see familiar faces flocking back to the farm!
