stroakings, noun.  The last milk taken from the cow during a milking.

This last milk obtained from a milking is supposed to be richer than the first.
Many historical cheese recipes list stroakings as an ingredient; one example is slipp-coat cheese (sometimes called green cheese, new cheese, or farmer's cheese).

Etymology:  All I found was a reference to being more gentle with the cow, to coax the last milk from it.
