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 thought this would help them get used to the stand. She hates to be milked, though. She will barely even touch the grains in front of her because she's so distracted. I don't believe she is in pain, because her udder looks fine and she allows her babies to nurse freely. (And she can get upset at her udder being touched at all, even lightly. It's not just the milking itself.) We've also done a mastitis test and it has come out fine. We've tried goat hobbles (first on the ankles, and later above the hocks) and they help a little bit, but she still manages to jump and buck around wildly. She broke the cup we were milking into today. We’ve been milking her for about three weeks now. We were wondering when others’ first fresheners calmed down in the milking stand. How many weeks does it take? Will it improve after her kids go to their new homes in a month or two because she’ll be glad to be relieved of the milk? Could there be another problem? Any ideas to calm her down or restrain her more effectively? Thanks!
