Cows are normally milked at least twice a day. Milking time takes about five minutes per cow depending on the type of machine and the amount of milk the cow is producing. Most dairies have enough machines to milk more than 20 cows at one time.

The most important thing to know about milking cows is that it takes a commitment and time. Milking cows is very rewarding and the health benefits of high quality milk are wonderful. However, if you are a beginner looking to start a small homestead keep in mind that your cows have to be milked EVERY day. There are some people who can work it to milk only once a day but most cows require being milked 2 times a day.  Also, a good thing to know is that cows give a lot of milk, usually more than one family could even think of using.  A good thing to think about is getting other families involved with your cows in order to share the load of work and the milk!  We hope this helps!
