    our girl Poppy who has been our star milker caught mastitis for the first time this year... and first time on our farm, which later turned to gang green. The vet and I fought her through infection and fever along with Tomorrow. The mastitis lump turned hard and worked its way out of udder...

    My doe has a large cut running from the top to nearly the bottom of her teat. I believe it if from barbed wire. It is deep, through the skin and into a layer of whitish fat, but not leaking any milk. The cut happened yesterday, has already stopped bleeding by the time we noticed it. We have been...

    So last fall my goat punctured her udder somehow, probably jumping a branch. It was a rather large hole, but we went to the vet and got it cleaned out and then flushed it and it healed quite nicely as far as we could tell from the outside - she was pregnant at the time. Now she's had two...

    What am I doing wrong? I purchased two registered nubian does from a lady who claimed she had never had a minutes trouble with either of them...she was just reducing her milk herd. They are beautiful, now 4 and 7 years old. The seven year old did not get bred last year (our buck was young)...

    I'm hoping someone can give me some advise. I have a female goat that has not had a baby for many years. She is at least 10 years old. In the spring I noticed that she had lost a lot of weight and after further observation, found that she had a hole in her udder. Her udder was also very hard...

    Hi, I haven't been on here for ages so hi all. :) Long story short, I have a jersey cow now instead of goats. Last year on calving we had slight lumps in udder, and in milk. Vet said it was not enough to show up on a test if mastitis, so I just massaged, hot-packed, and stripped. It cleared up...

    I work on a farm and recently noticed that a 13 year old doe's udder has swollen up. I milked her to see what would come out and a yellow liquid with spots of blood and chunks of white came out. Her udder was also very warm so I'm worried that it's infected. Large amounts of the yellow liquid...

    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...

    Hi, I'm new to this forum and milking. Our doe had her first freshening 2 weeks ago. She had twins but lost one. I have left her alone with the kid for 2 weeks and last night I separated them for the first time over night so I could milk this morning. Her right side alone produced about a cup...

    I'm sure there's been other posts practically identical to this one, but we just had our first set of twins yesterday (*Happy Dance*) and I noticed that one was not moving quite as fast as her brother, who was already jumping after several hours of being born. Mom has had some issues with...

    Hello there, I've noticed that my goats are starting to get huge. We had a break in with our boys at the end of October, but the girls look too pregnant for that. I'm wondering if there could have been other break ins that our farm hand just didn't tell us about. Is there a way of knowing how...

    Our milk goat got a cut on her teat this evening (on the side that her kid does not nurse on). It is not deep, but more like an inch wide triangle shape tear. We are going to clean it, and just keep an eye on the healing to see if we can milk her, but not this evening (we switched from morning...

    Our two-year-old Nigerian Dwarf doe gave birth about a month ago. We are relatively new to goat keeping. It is our first time milking and her's as well. Soon after getting her and her sister when they were kids, we built our milking stand and that is where we have fed them every day. We...

    One of my does who is building her udder (a 5thF) appears to have dry skin on her udder. We are fixing to give her a hair cut so I can see her udder better, and also get ready for kidding in a couple weeks, and I was wondering if I can treat the dry skin with some coconut oil? I've heard its...

    Boer doe kidded twins last year, her first with us. One teat would not open, tried milking her, put her on a pump. Could not get a single drop. So we just watched her carefully for mastitis and followed the babies' weights closely. Ended up supplementing one. Fast forward.....same doe just...

    I have a senior saanen doe that is not producing milk. I am new to the breed but have had nigerian goats for a long time. During her last milking, she was giving a gallon a day. Then I milked her off an on for a little bit and let the rest dry up only that one side didn't really dry up but...

    Astra is just over 1 yr old, I noticed a few weeks ago that her udder started to grow however lopsided. Then looks like one side has filled with fluid. I took her temp and that is in normal range 103.1. I did post a message about this under another name but lost the log on for that. So...

    Hello, We just started with Boer goats a couple of months ago and noticed that one of the does have swollen udder. From what we know, she has not been pregnant or given birth recently. But her udder is getting longer and bigger. We don't know much about goats and we bought her already with...
