IMHO you are talking about different things: one is about remnants in the landscape, useful for orientation and interesting for some as testimonies of history, the other is about a function which is exercised at certain times and otherwise not observable, hence pretty useless to know about unless you have very particular interests (because the farmers will likely not need OpenStreetMap to know where to bring their milk).
I find the inactive milk churning stands more important to map than the active collection points, and I don’t see a need or even good argument to use the same tag on both. Man made seems suitable for the former, amenity and disused:amenity would be fine for the function (but as explained above, function is less important in this case, subjectively)
