Milking Machine Overview
The Hoegger Milking System is unique to the industry. While virtually all other
systems are cow machines converted for use on goats, the Hoegger System is
designed from the ground up, specifically for goats.
The Pulsator
Our system uses an electronic pulsator built into the machine itself. This
substantially reduces the amount of residual moisture in the pulsator and
helps to make it the easiest to maintain on the market today.

Machine Assembly
Belly Pail Instructions
As a courtesy to our customers, we deliver the belly pail assembly fully
assembled, so that you may have a visual reference for how it works. What
follows are instructions for milking and cleaning.
1. Select the desired pulsation rate with the right switch. Your options are 40
and 60 pulsations per minute. Normal pulsation rate is 60, 40 is intended for a
doe having difficulty letting down her milk.
1. Remove machine from packing board
2. Turn on machine and allow vacuum to build.
3. Open vacuum to the pail by turning handle parallel to stall cock.
4. Place belly pail under doe.
5. Hold one inflation at a downward angle to close off the vacuum to that
inflation. Keep pressure on the tail of the inflation while raising the hole end.
6. Attach inflations to each teat.
7. Milking time should be between 60 and 90 seconds per goat.
8. Use Fight BacTM or another sanitizing spray or wipe each doe so as not to
spread any potential contaminants or infections.
9. After milking with the belly pail, rinse the entire pail and lid with cool water.
2. Attache “FOOT” (Attache
front bolts [11/4”] through motor
strap and foot first, then rear
bolts [13/4”] through motor
strap, foot, and axel assembly)
4
10. Detach the ends of the two pulsation lines from the splitter on the lid of
the pail.
11. Connect the open ends of the pulsation lines to the solid stainless steel
plug.
3. Remove handle from bottom
of machine frame and place in
top holes of machine frame.
12. Put entire pail and lid disassembled into your dishwasher and run normally.
Do not use hot drying option, as this will ruin your shells and inflations.
4. Attach hanger to side of
frame using [11/2”] Bolts
13. If you choose to wash and sanitize the pail(s) by hand, use the Dairy Soap
and Sanitizer included in your original shipment.
