shoulder yoke

Shoulder Yoke with 2 Milk Pails
After the cows had been milked the milk pails were carried back to the buttery with the aid of a shoulder yoke, shaped to fit around the neck and sit on the shoulders.  Chains hang from the tapered ends on which to hang the pails. Probably derived from the word pale meaning a flat strip of wood, the pail was made up of wooden strips bound together with iron hoops, like a barrel.
