My two Nigis are now producing over a quart of milk per day each, around 5 cups each giving me over 1/2 gallon of milk a day. This is way more milk than I need or want. I've got a fridge full of yogurt, milk in the freezer, Liz's delicious pudding and an ice cream maker on order. I have begun limiting my milking of them to 20 oz a milking or 40 oz per day each (32 oz in a quart). Since they are first fresheners, will this affect their production in later years, i.e., udder development? I don't really want to limit their later capacity, but on the other hand I don't know if there will ever be a time that I need more than 1/2 gallon of milk a day. (Unless I become a cheese maker! Where's the recipe section?) I plan on milking them the 305 days recommended for full udder development and quite understand they will not be giving this much milk for most of that time. They've currently been lactating almost 3 months. Am I making a mistake limiting their production? I could be getting almost another pint out of each per day if I pushed it.
