    Those nipples make it very awkward milking by hand. Can't stand getting the milk all over my hands because the milk was expressed out the wrong nipple.

    Nope, only 2. The nipple is right next to the main nipple. Kinda like a dew claw or an extra finger, only difference being that there's milk that comes out. I'll take a picture tomorrow when I'm out milking her so you can see what I'm talking about.
