Do you mean the actual milker or the vacuum pump? In my area, you can find both by putting out an ad. Lots of small dairys went out of business and some had the milking equipment left in the barn.
When you are dead, you don't know that you are dead. It is difficult only for the others. It is the same when you are stupid.

A dung beetle walks into a bar, looks around and says "Is this stool taken"????

Google search for your local Dairy Equipment suppliers.
As millstreaminm said, A lot of small dairy farmers have gone out of business and most had at least one milk bucket for milking fresh cows or treated cows. Sometimes you can get a good deal on used milker equipment at farm retirement
auctions. New dairy equipment costs and arm and a leg and used should only cost you a pinky toe or two.
