I think when you switch hands it puts the teat at a different angle and sometimes the milk flows better that way ( at least in my experience). Plus one hand is stronger too.

I've been dealing with a teat injury and the cow will shift and hit me with her tail when I use my left hand to milk that teat. I use a lot more force with left because of a hand injury that doesn't allow me to clamp top of treat correctly and with the tip of treat fine it hurts her more when I do that.
claytonpaul: A bull was put on her herd Late Last May so she was expected to be due between May1 and August. They quoted me August so I wouldn't be disappointing by a late arrival.
