"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…"

Can dry doe be forced into milk?

My Ginger girl, the first baby born here, had a horrible tragedy with her first litter in March of 2016 and both were lost. I did milk her; her first month's milk went to help a rejected kid elsewhere.I was heartbroken because I believe she would have been my best mother and that is saying a lot with these girls.  She can never have kids again because of the issues she had.  She has always been super with all the kids, even letting them nurse from her though their moms didn't care for it.I did…See More

Butterfat versus Cheese Production

From another source, this was posted:"It's the high allele's on their S1 Casein protein gene that causes the higher yield, softer curd and desired taste in goats. ND's just happen to be the one breed that carries the most A and B alleles on the that gene. Butterfat is not the cause, genetic allele's are."Is this correct?  I ask because my cheese production from milk is less when butterfat is down.See More
