Cheese yield

This is posted for the info about the cheese yield and not necessarily an endorsement for any product.  It has also been my experience when making cream cheese that my ND milk yields at least 20-25 percent more cream cheese than other goat milk.https://www.facebook.com/Chaffhaye/photos/a.266215171823.143989.235018821823/10152354993586824/?type=1&theaterSee More

"Julia, I don't mean to disagree with you, but, unless it is a genetic type of cancer, it is not true that if your parents have had it that it is more likely you will have it.  That is dependent on the type of cancer.  In the case of…"

Critique for my junior doe

Hi, could anybody tell me their thoughts about my doe? Sunnywood MozzarELLA, sire Tiny Angels Levi Blues, dam Sunnywood Brie, born April 2nd, 2013. I am hoping to breed her this fall, and she has done pretty well at 4h shows I have taken her to. Pictures are from July 2014. See More

Can goats balance their nutrient needs?

Started by Deborah Niemann-Boehle in Goats 101. Last reply by Julia @Woody Glen Farm on Friday. 1 Reply

Can animals intuitively balance their diets? Earlier studies in this area said no, even though many organic and grassfed cattle producers have sworn by cafeteria-style minerals for a very long time. This article explains how earlier studies were…Continue

Looking for stud service

Looking for stud service in January for healthy young doe. Promised land related buck in central n.c.

I have a question about milk production please help me..

Posted by Kara Agoston on August 10, 2014 at 10:51am 8 Comments

Hi I am posting not knowing if this is the right way to do it as it's my first time posting. My question is that I am milking for the first time and I have a first freshener and I have only been milking her in the morning. I take the two doelings away from Mom at night as I have a stall separator that allows them to be beside mom but separate. I only milk her in the am and return her to her babies for the whole day. I noticed the amount I have been getting from her is decreasing. Should I be…

Re-growth after disbudding

Posted by Ralph Paterno on June 12, 2014 at 3:59pm 3 Comments

We have an 8 week old buckling who we neutered this morning using a Ritchey Nipper!  It went smoothly relatively speaking.  About a week ago though I noticed a different issue - a scur coming up.  Now they are in 3 places, about 1/2 inch tall and pretty thin (so they are kind of sharp).  What should I do?  I'm concerned about him hurting someone else when headbutting.  Do I have him re-burned by the vet? (I'm doing the burning next year)!   cut them myself somehow (how?)?  Any ideas.…

Cutting back

Posted by Lyn Adams on June 10, 2014 at 9:47am 1 Comment

Recently a friend asked how much I feed my goats and how often. Well as of Monday I have cut back from twice a day to only am feeding. They have all the second cut they want and fresh water, minerals and baking soda . We built a 3 sided shelter for them as well, I now lock them out of the barn durning the day. This really will help to keep the barn cleaner longer. Hope this doesn't sound cruel . Curious to know what other people do.
