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.

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.

FarmBoy66: Littlebirddog, get them started on grain, free choice. They also need to have water. Try to get them interested in it and then in small steps start taking their milk away. They should be fully weaned in about 2 weeks or so
