She will only tolerate it for so long, before kicking at my husband. I am not so good with the teat pulling. I could feel it going back up. She has one rather large teat, we were worried about Mastitis, but the people we bought her from were dairy farmers for 20 years, before retiring and doing beef. They didn't act like there was a problem, only that it was too big for the calf. When we pulled on it and saw milk, we were relived, none of the milk symptoms of mastitis was present. Mama doesn't act like it hurts when you grab it, it doesn't feel swollen. We were told to call them if we have any questions, or problems and when the calf is born. It turns out that these people are friends with my husband's grandmother, so we are trusting them.
