Traditional Jersey Milking Can

Pictured at centre is a Traditional Jersey Milking Can.  These were produced on the Island by various iron mongers. In general the Jersey Farmer had a reputation of being thrifty, the advantage of the Jersey milking can was that if the cow kicked it, a small amount of milk might be lost, but unlike english milk pails all would not be lost.  In cases where the cow was known to have a lively temperament the can would be empted into a churn before it was half full. The result was, that it was not often that the Jersey farmer had cause to "cry over spilt milk"
