"At that level of production, it's not a big deal. Just do it. You will probably see her production go down in about 3-4 days. Most goats will produce 2/3 to 1/2 as much when to go from two to one milking a day."

"In a study with more than a thousand Saanens, when they bred homozygous polled to homozygous polled, there was a ten percent incidence of hermaphrodites in the kids. That’s only one in ten, but more than a risk some people want to take. So…"
