For two weeks now we have been trying to start this overachiever drying up. She has been in milk for a bit over a year and half now. I have cut to no grain grain, no alfalfa hay, she gets one handful of alfalfa pellet mornin and night.... and btw she is REALLY pissed about this lol. I am def starving her just ask her. Anyhoo. She grazes and has good timothy orchard hay and that is it. But i am STILL having to pull milk from her every day. A few days i have been able to wait 36 hours but maybe two and it was raining those days. I milk only until her udder is not hard and even that take two to four cups.... she usually gives me a bit over half a gallon a day. She just wants to milk and milk and i want her to dry up so we can breed her for early next year kids. Got any tricks up your books for me?
