Goat milking stand dimensions

goat milking stand 2x4's

I got the base of our new goat milking stand finished today.

It's 20 inches high, 48 inches long and 22 inches wide.

Milking day is still far off, but we want to start using it to trim their hooves.

Do you already know about http://fiascofarm.com/goats/ ? They are the single best online source of goat info IMHO. They also have really good plans for a milk stand. I've used the one I built using their pattern for over five years and it is still going strong. http://fiascofarm.com/goats/milkstand.html I do not use a mat on mine, as I find it helpful for there to be a gap in the boards for milk to run through if the bucket gets kicked, which is inevitable. :-)
