The Daily Halacha Moment - Milking A Cow On Shabbat 🐮
״כל השונה הלכות בכל יום - מובטח לו שהוא בן העולם הבא״ (נידה עג ע״א, מגילה כח:)
“Anyone who studies Halachot every day is guaranteed that he is destined for the world-to-come” (Megilla 28b, Niddah 73a)
May one milk a cow on Shabbat?
Included in Mefarek is the prohibition of expressing human milk or milking an animal into
a container. 
That being said, it is prohibited to milk a cow either by hand or by machine if the milk is retained for use. However, if the animal is in pain from engorgement, it is permitted to ask a non-Jew to milk it even if the milk will be retained. The milk may not be consumed on Shabbat, and it is also considered muktzeh.  If there is no non-Jew available, a Jewish person may milk the cow himself in a manner that the milk goes to waste.
