how do you milk a sheep???

One of the first questions asked of us when the topic of sheep milk cheese comes up is, "how do you milk a sheep??" Well, I was sent this great youtube video from our friend, Dale Peel. Hopefully, this will shed some light on how to milk a sheep. Enjoy!

  1. You can milk anything with nipples right?

  2. I just saw that the Ketchum, Idaho sheep trailing is going to be featuring cheeses (among many other sheep/lamb related things). I am headed there in 2 weeks, you should look into it. It is a really great & fun event. http://www.trailingofthesheep.org/

  3. Those are some efficient and trained sheep! Their poor nipples! I hope they have some lansinoh cream.
