Enlarged udder - hormone induced lactation? Call vet?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Deborah Niemann-Boehle Mar 21. 3 Replies

I'm concerned about Ginger.  She has always been heavier than she needs to be, since she was a kid just a few weeks old. That has not changed. However, her udder is concerning me. If I were milking…Continue

Graphics/Photos of goat skulls - do you have any?

Several years ago, I came across a page which totally explained why our Nigerian Dwarf does should only be bred to purebred Nigerian Dwarf bucks.  To illustrate exactly why, they had skulls of the…Continue

We never know when we might need to evacuate our animals and something we rarely think about.  This farm very generous offered good information. It is worth printing and keeping with your goat…Continue

"If you want milk, yes, just start milking. You know the drill. :)  If anyone else is reading this, you should NOT just try to milk a goat like this to see if you can do it. When a doe has been dry, there is a plug in her teats that keeps…"

"So are you saying that I can start milking and actually get milk?  If she can be milked again, I would be delighted.  She is also my favorite, the first born here, and the most social.She kidded in March 2016.  When I started to dry…"

"No worries! It's just a precocious udder. Since you mentioned that you had a hard time drying her up, I'm not terribly surprised by this. If you are ready to start milking again, congratulations! We've had people on here over the…"

Enlarged udder - hormone induced lactation? Call vet?

I'm concerned about Ginger.  She has always been heavier than she needs to be, since she was a kid just a few weeks old. That has not changed. However, her udder is concerning me. If I were milking her, I would REALLY be concerned but she has been dried up for over a year though it was not easy drying her up. Her little body kept wanting to produce milk and likely still would be, it took well over a month (September 2019). Lately, her udder has looked like it is full! It is actually fuller than…See More

"If I come across it, I will share it =) That is odd that someone was told to only breed pygmies to their Nigerians. What was the purpose behind that? If you have Nigerians for milk, you certainly do not want the offspring that you are producing to…"

Glenna Rose replied to Cherissa Woudenberg's discussion Heat lamp?
"I would not bring them inside the house.  Mom is already ongoing enough stress from kidding without adding to it by moving her out of her familiar territory.  If they are well protected from wind and rain, they should be fine.  They…"

Deborah Niemann-Boehle replied to Glenna Rose's discussion Need web page address that shows kid skull sizes
"I have not seen that. If you do find it, be sure to share it here. I was told by a former pygmy breeder that it was the broad shoulders that caused so many c-sections in pygmies. Even when pygmies are bred to each other, they have a very high rate…"

Two or three years ago, I came across a web page discussing the importance of only breeding full-blood Nigerian Dwarf bucks to Nigerian Dwarf does.It explained the difference in skull sizes between Nigerian Dwarf and Pygmy kids and the more delicate bone structure of Nigerian Dwarf does.  It discussed why it was important to not use Pygmy bucks or to use mixes to breed to the finer-boned Nigerian Dwarf does.They had illustrations of each which really drove home the point of the importance of…See More

"So sorry to hear this.  I don't understand why people cannot simply appreciate what is offered to them instead of trying to exploit it.Thank you for being alert and catching it."

Graphics/Photos of goat skulls - do you have any?

Several years ago, I came across a page which totally explained why our Nigerian Dwarf does should only be bred to purebred Nigerian Dwarf bucks.  To illustrate exactly why, they had skulls of the different breeds of goats which showed Pygmy goats, though they are a small goat, have larger heads than Nigerian Dwarf goats.  It went on to explain that if the kid chooses the genes of the Pygmy (or other breed) goat at conception, that the kids may not be able to be delivered with the smaller, more…See More

Glenna Rose replied to Pamela Adkins's discussion A strange bad year

Glenna Rose replied to Lil's discussion Should I take my goats when/if I move?
"Another thing to consider:  If they have never traveled before (locally or otherwise), you might take them on short trips so they are somewhat familiar with the noises and smells.  It might make a difference on how stressed they are during…"
