Also, having been there when they milked, i can attest that the milking machine is NOT "harsh", nor does it "cause great pain". The cows relaxed & let down their milk readily, ate while being milked, & visited with one another - the milking shed was full of the murmur of cows contentedly chatting while the milk hissed & burbled thru the pipes overhead. . . .
