Milking is the term for the process of extracting milk from the mammary glands of an animal, usually bovines (cattle, buffalo) or caprids (goats, sheep), and rarely even equines (horses, donkeys) or camels. Milking may be done by hand or with the use of machines, and requires that the animal be currently or recently pregnant.
