This article is about an older version of DF.

A milker is a dwarf that will milk creatures in a Farmer's workshop. The only milkable creatures are purring maggots (to milk something it has to be carryable, and the only milkable thing you can carry is a purring maggot), though civilizations seem to milk other creatures off-screen (and trade the milk with you).

Unless you embark on a suitable chasm, milkers tend to be only as useful as peasants. Suggested tasks include:

  • Military
  • Stone hauler
  • Any other task almost
