I was was gifted a nigeran dwarf milking goat hours after her twins died . This is her first kidding and I have never milked before that day. ( Other than when I was 4 and my goofy uncle showed me how to milk his horse) I started milking her every 4 hours on day 1,2,3 and day 4 I began a 6 hour...
so I bought a milk doe and when I got her home she gave me
Night 1- 2 quarts that night,
Morning 2- was the same 2 quarts
Night 2- was just shy of 2 quarts
Morning 3- 2 cups
Night 3- 1 cup
(Would not eat grain or any kind. This night gave her 5cc vit b complex)
Morning 4- two cups
Afternoon 4- 4...
I am a newbie whose doe gave me twins (her first time, too) Thursday (today is Sat). For CAE prevention reasons, I am pasteurizing her milk and bottle feeding her kids with it.
For some reason, I assumed that I had to milk the mom every 4 hours, on the same schedule I am feeding the kids...
