    Just a plugged teat wouldn't leave the udder large and hard. There is something wrong that you are only getting 6 ounces per milking.

    Mastitis does that, it sometimes may block the whole teat from anything coming out or partially and you can only get a little bit out.
    Or it is so thick, nothing comes out either.

    It is not thick, it does not stink and it is not yellow either. I will have to have the vet come and do a mastitis test. Thanks for all the responses

    Order you a cmt test. It is not expensive, lasts forever and has tons of liquid. Jefferspet has theirs for less than $20 shipped. :).

    In the meantime, keep warm compresses, and milk very frequently if you can. Do NOT allow babies to nurse from that side.
