Ok so my doe Vanilli Kidded on the 29th and I am finally a first time goat mommy! Anyway, she just had one very big doe and I noticed that her udder is VERY lopsided. I figured this was probably due to the baby just nursing off the one side because it gets and stays VERY full even though she stays with her kid all day. So.... trying to remedy this I have been trying to milk out that side to keep the pressure down so that the little gal can nurse from that side(which she has done on occasion). How do I fix it? Do I just have to keep milking out that side every day twice a day? I also noticed when I milk the one side that there is a lot of milk on the other side as well so I have been milking both which means I have been getting about a quart of milk a day already! Unfortunately it tastes a little off... like a bit of a sour high note to it. Is this just because it is so new? I took the milk from the first day to freeze as colostrum but is it possible that this continued milk is also colostrum or has it in it? I have never had milk taste like this before. The milk gets strained and cooled immediately after milking and I have tried as best I can for good sanitation, sterilizing utensils ect. Is it a case of new milk? What can I do with the extra milk since it really doesn't taste that good.... cheese? or is it just pet milk? How long can I expect this to last? Also, I had Vanilli pretty well milk stand trained before she freshened, she loved to get up on the stand for her grain. Lately though I have had to drag her up or even milk on the ground. The latter was this evening with disastrous results I might add. I thought we were doing pretty good but even putting her front feet up and picking up her back end didn't work tonight I must have looked a sight!
