We just received ours. Took 3 weeks...and arrives rather poorly packaged from the Ukraine. Tammy (moderator on this board) has a great link for a video on using this particular separator. It works beautifully..and is far cheaper than most other models on the market. We bought the manual model rather than the electric one. I'd suggest what we bought. Works just fine and no electrical parts to replave.
12 laying hens (10 RIRs, 2 Australorps); 1 percentage mini-jersey cow (Elsie); 1 percentage mini-galloway heifer (Bella); 1 mini-jersey steer (Zach); 1 percentage mini-jersey bull (born October 23, 2011) 2 dogs (blonde Labrador and a Katrina rescue dog); 2 cats (tabby rescues); small farm in Central Virginia and loving it!

I have the manual one. It works well no problems. I have never used another cream separator so don't have any thing to compare it to. It does need to be secured down very well. If you don't want to permanently secure it to a table. I just bolted it to a board and clamp the board down to my counter with 2 c clamps when I want to use it.

Greetings, I sell these Ukrainian separators at www.slavicbeauty.net/ and on ebay at: stores.ebay.com/fun-widgets?_rdc=1 I asked some of my customers to make videos about the separators. I thought it would be helpful if I post the videos here. They are very informative. We have 2 manuals edited at the moment. The instructions for the electric separator 50l/h and manual separator 50l/h. If anyone needs the manuals, please contact me and I'll be happy to email them to you.
Here are the links to the videos:
All the separators are suitable for both cow and goat's milk.
cathymb6: I have a new calf, not sure when to start milking heifer. Saw somewhere within the first 12 hours. Is this correct?

mommamary: Researching dual purpose milk and fiber goats. Does anyone have recommendations?

mommamary: I am researching goat breeds that have Both good milk and fiber for spinning. Are there any good ones?

Jenny at Sagehill: Problem w/fiber goats is they put their energy into fiber, not milk. Cashmere goats might work, but their fiber needs a special dehairing machine to remove a LOT of coarse hair from a bit of cashmere.

Jenny at Sagehill: Angora goats might work except they aren't bred to milk much or longer than their kids require. They're rather smaller animals and can be finicky.

beelady: i had an angora doe that was a precocious milker. huge udder too... right now im crossing angora buck on nubian does saving the doelings that show mohair/cashmere and breeding those onto angoras..

Chatty Kathy: I've been out of the KFC, milking mass quantities. I cannot seem to find Joann's current diary entries and saw a post asking how she is doing. She has been such an inspiration and help to me. I'd like to know how she is.
