I've been milking goats for almost two years so I do have experience with the 'normal' issues. This is new for me.. my Alpine doe's milk is off flavor this year. It is the typical goaty flavor but not real strong... just enough that it is very noticeable and we'd rather not drink it. I'm open to any suggestions from anyone who's had this ... here's a little more background on her if it helps... Her first year she freshened her milk was wonderful!! I milked her for just over a year and then dried her off about 2 1/2 months before she was due to freshen again. She didn't freshen... she ended up not being pregnant that second year. Last fall I had the vet look her over, she looked great and there was nothing apparent as to why she didn't get pregnant the year before. The vet put her on two doses of Lutilyse. She freshened with twins in February this spring; a doeling and buckling. The buckling was not quite 'right' and died two days later - the vet had no idea what was wrong (she is a very experienced goat vet by the way). The doeling is doing fantastic. I started milking this doe about three weeks after freshening. I separate her kids at night, so I get her morning milk and they get her all day and I don't milk in the evening. Once her doeling was weaned.. at about 11 weeks of age, I started milking morning and night (like normal). Her milk has not tasted right at all. I've given her straight alfalfa hay, klassy goat mix with BOSS. She's not on pasture so all her feed goes through me. She has 24/7 access to loose goat minerals and baking soda. Any ideas?
