How to Do the Milk the Cow Yo-Yo Trick

Learn how to do the Milk the Cow yo-yo trick from four-time US National Yo-Yo champion and 2006 World Yo-Yo champion Paul Yath in this Howcast video.


The next trick I am doing is called Milk the Cow. It utilizes the trick, Hop the Fence.

You have to actually master Hop the Fence before you even attempt this trick so make sure you do a least ten times with your right hand, ten times with your left hand, consistent, kind of like how I taught you guys in Loop-to-Loop. So, after you master both left and right, try it at the same time. And once you get it down consistently at the same time, alternate.

The reason why it is called Milk the Cow is because you're simulating the motion of milking some teats. There is no cow and no milk present, but you might impress someone. You can do different variations with Milk the Cow. You can go inside-outside, kind of like the loops. You can go over and under, right over left, left over right. You can also add some Around the Worlds, too. From this trick you can go up to the Punching Bags, bring up forward like you're punching a bag. You can carry all the way to the top to vertical loops or you can come around and do the Staircase. And that's Milking the Cow.
