"I have a FF right now giving 2 pounds per day at 359 days fresh. I'm not breeding her because I want to see how long she can keep this up."

"Almost at 600 DIM for my ff. I think I'm going to breed her next month, so obviously she will dry off."

"Peggy, I have looked for that NDPS info too, though not very seriously because we are not milking (yet). There is a hyperlink to it on a Pholia Farm web page, but that particular page might be old news because the hyperlink does not work. See the…"

"I have a doe I highly suspect is pregnant. My buck broke the fence back in October. I know that two does were in heat, and dried themselves off recently. The third doe is still milking 1.8 pounds per day and nursing a very attached wether. Is this…"
