MILKING MACHINE

exhibition number: Dairy 101

Milking machines were invented during the early 20th century and good ones were available from the 1920s but they still required someone to fit the equipment to the cow. Recently, machines that do this automatically have been invented.

Milking machines were first used in Cardiganshire in about 1917. These probably made the biggest difference to the work-load of farm women.
