Hi Rachel, I have a question about some barn records that I got from a woman who has a doe I'm interested in. However, it's Greek to me! Can you explain?
Here are my numbers for Jazz: 2013 is her first freshening (triplet bucks). I began to milk her at 15 DIM - She averaged 1.1 lbs/milking, twice a day milking (for DIM 15-25) and was nursing 1 kid (other 2 were re-homed)
DIM 26-56 .93 lbs/milking , twice a day milking (kid re-homed 50 DIM)
DIM 57-78 .8 lb/milking (once a day) - she was then dried up.
Raquel, talk to me about top bar bee hives. ^^ I no nothing about bees - except that I want some. I saw instructions on a Pinterest site but I dont like the roof he made. It is a blue barrel hive. How did you do your roof? And when you do have bees - do you open both holes - or just one. ??
Thanks for the numbers Rachel. That is really sweet of you. I am going to fix her an emergency numbers board for goats and I will put them on there so they don't get lost along with some vet numbers and a few others.
Hi Rachel I am actually heading south for a buck show in Grants Pass on Friday and we could meet Friday afternoon or I am comming back on Satuday evening. I figured they ran me around $2.70 each so 4 or 5 would be in you price range If meeting is not going to work for you then I could still send them to you. If you would like to call me my number is 541-556-4309. Just let me what you want to do. I figured if we meet it would save you on shipping cost. I am not sure how much it would cost for shipping but should not be more then a couple of dollars
