for people who love the littlest dairy goats
I am having problems with 2 different does. I could do different post but I will try to put them together.
1st - my milking doe, that has been milking for 5 months is now going nuts when I try to milk her. She still lets her kid eat but when I get her up on the stand, she pushes her food off, kicks, and then finally justs sits down. I am wondering if it is time for me to dry her up?
2nd - my first freshener is not letting me milk her either. I have been getting her on the stand and gently trying just to get her used to me being "there" but she is not liking it. She kicks like crazy and hops all over the stand.
I am getting like the other lady that posted, very discouraged!!! We are not selling any of our kids and my milkers are being to difficult to milk. Any advice would be great! I love the milk and just started cheese and yogurt but now am wondering if it is all worth it.
***Just an added thing. Last week took my buck to vet and he had urinary infection (don't know the correct name) but she informed me no grain for bucks, and only grain for milkers or pregnant does, does everyone agree with this?
