A Mr. Lemsky of Wisconsin writes in response to Gil Mangles’ query in the October/November 2019 issue with more on the Pine Tree Milker. According to Lemsky, the Pine Tree Milker “was the name of the first generation milking machine of the Surge Corp., well known here in Wisconsin. There is a good, concise history associated with the Pine Tree machine at Surge Milker. Today, it has all been consolidated to the German food processing machinery giant, GEA. The slogan ‘The Cow’s Adopted Child’ refers to the Pine Tree Milker’s acceptance by the dairy cow as willingly as is if it were the cow’s own calf.”
