Which doe to choose?

As some of you know, I lost a prize doe in January due to bloat from something she was fed through the fence; the vet could not determine exactly what.  I am still not adjusted to her death and it will be two months on Monday.  I'm not sure what is the most difficult thing to accept - that I lost such a sweet goat, that is the first adult loss, that she was so young, that she was such a great milker, or that I named her after my great grandmother thinking I would have her for many years to…See More

"If you have hens, you can also make ricotta for them.  They love both the ricotta and the whey.  In fact, mine prefer the whey to water. It is also wonderful for the eggs.  When I put the whey in the garden, I usually put it where…"

"I need to call him and ask what he meant, James.  She has been in milk since March of 2016, so 2-1/2 years.  Supply is, of course, going down now.  I just read of one being in milk for five years and actually recently increasing her…"

Glenna Rose replied to Jakayla Marie Hamminga's discussion Grain and Goats
"Only milking does need grain.  Do not feed grain to pregnant does who are not producing milk.  The extra calories can to babies who will be too large for a safe birth.  I made that mistake.  Ironically, it was my breeder who told…"
