A milkmaid (or milk maid) was a girl or woman employed to milk dairy cows.[citation needed] She also used the milk to prepare dairy products such as cream, butter, and cheese.

The term milkmaid is not the female equivalent of milkman in the sense of one who delivers milk to the consumer; it is the female equivalent of milkman in the sense of cowman.[citation needed]
