    I tested her with cmt test and nothing out of whack.
    Her udder doesn't show any of the normal signs of mastitis either. She IS a bit copper deficient though. I'm working on that.

    Is there anything she could be stressed about? When we first got our goats, they were currently milking, and we tasted their milk before we bought them and it was good, but when we brought them home it was suddenly INSANELY salty. After a few days when they got settled and calmed down it went back to being fine.

    I don't get it. Her milk was SO salty it was nasty. But then today I tried her milk and there was no off flavor whatsoever, just super sweet and creamy.

    I haven't been on here in a LONG while. And I admit, I did not read all 21 pages, but I went through this with my Togg doe. 3 things brought her back. I removed the cobalt block, copper bolused her, and ran a fecal.then wormed her accordingly. After 2 doses of wormer 10 days apart the milk is good again. Foamy in the pail good.
