Baby-Integrated Animal Milking Processes (Camel, Yak, and Horse)


Animal milking in Mongolia starts with a unique process attribute. During the milking process, the animals are not immediately approached; instead, a baby is brought to the mother to start feeding. After the baby has started the milking process, the baby is led away and the manual milking process takes over. While this process is similar in all the communities, each community has different procedures for the manual aspect of milking their respective animal. (see Figure 1)
