I still think it needs to be a farmer of a farm that produces milk, as this version could be misconstrued badly.

Perhaps milk farmer is less ambiguous ;-)

Depends. Some would say a dairy farmer farms cows, not milk.

That might reduce the ambiguity of the English translation, but the ambiguity exists in the Klingon, too.
