Beep has hard knots in her udder. She has had them from the first time she came into milk at six months old precociously(she is six years old now) but they have gotten allot worse is this second lactation. The largest has grown in size from chick pea sized to quarter sized in the past two years and are becoming very apparent without even touching her udder. One of the largest is at the top of one of her teat and some smaller ones are at the top as well as medium sized ones all over her mammary tissue. They are very hard but not quite rock solid. Its not CAE because she was raised on milk replacer not to mention she produces 11 pounds of milk a day. And its also not plugged glands because no amount of massaging, compresses or peppermint oil with soften them. Anyone have any idea what it is? I've heard of something called weeping teats where the mammary tissue grows in the wrong place or something like that but this is all over and they are hard.
