for people who love the littlest dairy goats
Good morning everyone,
I have some questions, as usual.
Cinnamon had triplets on Dec. 9th. I sold 2 of them on Jan. 13 and they are being bottle fed and doing great. I started milking Cinnamon on the 14th...once a day, by the 16th she was hollering in the afternoon as her bag was really full, so I started milking her twice a day...her one kid is with her all of the time.
The last two mornings, I am getting NO milk and in the afternoon I'm lucky if I get 1/4 cup. Now all of the time, Novar (her kid) feels like his stomach is going to pop. I would really only like to milk her once a day until Novar is weened....he is a little piglet! Not sure what to do....I really don't want her milk quantity to drop off (which is what is happening, I think).
So please give me some of your wonderful advice. You all have helped me so much already, I hate to keep coming back with more questions.
