Terry had my same thoughts to gently blend the two braded strands together into one braided strand.  I've only milked a couple of cows and that was when I was real young, shortly after Columbus landed, and that was at my uncle's dairy farm.  So most were machine milked.  But you know he had to squirt me a couple times and the local farm cat too.

I actually did grow up in a small farming community in central Nebraska and have milked my share of cows and agree with you on the technique. I suppose one method is as good as another, probably a matter of preference. Smiley

Was reading "Braiding Rubber Motors" and am a bit confused with the comment of "milking" the two loops together.  I'm assuming this to mean continue winding in the same direction. Don't Ross advocates winding backwards to accomplish Braiding.  Help please.

I guess you had to grow up knowing how a cow is milked by hand. In any event I suppose it means sliding your fingers along the length of the motor to squeeze out knots and get an even twist through the entire length.
