hard udder

  1. Health & Wellness
    My never-been-bred Nubian has an enlarged right udder. It is about the size of my small cupped hand. It is hard, not like a rock, but definitely not soft. In retrospect, I think it has developed slowly over the years, I just thought her right teat hung just slightly lower than the left. Has...

    I have a lamancha doe that delivered triplets 2 1/2 weeks ago. All seemed well until I tried to milk her today and her udder is rock hard on one side. I can't get much out of that side after massaging (maybe a pint). Her udder is also scaly and cracked. I took her temperature tonight (104.2)...

    We have a milking doe with a rock hard udder. She kidded 2 months ago. She had a nice udder, would deflate very well after milking, easy to milk, overall an almost perfect udder and very suddenly turned rocky. It feels like there are three rocks in the udder, one big one and two, not-so-big...

Last April she kidded a single and I battled mastitis from the day after the kid was born on one side of her udder until June when it finally...

    Hello. We moved across the state a month ago and one of our does got injured during transport. In the close quarters in the trailer, she got hooked in the udder by the herd queen's horn. Her udder became swollen and rock hard on one side and the milk was off color- I believe there was blood in...

    Our nubian doe, Pepsi, was due to have her kids several days ago.... We're on day 158 and still no signs of labor. Everything was looking fine until I went out to milk the goats this afternoon and Pepsi's udder (left side) was swollen significantly more than the other side. It was not that way...
