"It's been almost 20 years since my husband built our first milking stand, but from what I remember ... He used plans off the Internet at that time. We had no clue that there would be a difference between NDs and other goats, so he followed the…"

Milking Stand Size/Plan Question

Hi again,    Though I only have wethers I've been wanting to make or have made a milking stand for reasons other than milking. My question is...I have seen plans from people milking larger goats and am wondering whether the dimensions would still be right for NG's or if the stand measurements would need to be adjusted.  Does anyone have plans they would share or give me a recommendation?   Thanks very much.See More

"Thanks again, Tammy.  I will indeed cut down on the pellets. It is so helpful to know the amounts you are feeding, as I couldn't information about how much to be feeding at all when it came to pellets.  This has been bothering me for…"

"Hey there Ann. I was able to get the photos downloaded today =) It really does look like the 'fluff' of their poofy winter coat coming in to me. Definitely keep an eye on them. Pictures can be hard to 'guess' from, but you are…"

Overweight Wethers?

Hi everyone. It has been quite a while since I posted with a question. My 4 wethers are now about 11 months old, more or less. I may have made a mistake a while back when they outgrew their earlier grain ration and I introduced timothy pellets instead. I know I didn't need to, but they seemed to enjoy the grain pellets so much that I went ahead and did. I give them pellets first thing in the morning and then again in the later afternoon. They have free choice hay and minerals all the time as…See More

"I'm glad to know it was a normal castration band and that he's doing well. It's been more than 10 years since we stopped banding, so I guess I'd forgotten how long it can take for them to fall off.  Okay ... funny banding…"

"Oh No! It sounds like they may have used a band that was too big? Where you able to see what color the band is? The scrotum and testicles should be shriveled and hard, like mummified, by now I would think."
