Nigerian Dwarf Dairy Goats

for people who love the littlest dairy goats

So I think it would be a good idea to do a one day milk test on 2 of my Nigerian girls.  I'm planning on breeding them next week, so I'd be testing them in the fall.  I've never done a milk test before and was wondering- how soon after freshening do you do the test?  Thank you!!!

You can do it at any time. Check the website for the registry for which you want to test and get the rules. Basically, they take into account the number of days the doe is fresh, so the score is adjusted accordingly.

I googled... and found a conversation and in that conversation was this link:

A lot of it is still Greek to me, but it looks like the kind of info you need?

 

Thanks!!
