no doubt but what dairy farmers are a different breed! I've never milked in a tie-stall stanchion barn, but I have milked in several other types. mostly herringbones, but I milked in a twin-double-two tandem for a while. That was very tedious, as we were milking about 120 head with 2 people running the milkers and we weighed and recorded each cow's production twice per day. I sure don't miss that!
I have milked some before, but I was not reared on a dairy. I helped out at my friend's some on the weekends so we could get out and about quicker. I also helped out a little bit on the UK experiment station when I had friends that worked there. the profession of a dairyman is not for the weak of heart!
