I have two alpine does I am drying up. I started by milking them half way out twice a day until they were starting to feel a bit more empty each milking. I then went to one milking a day and one of them is not producing much anymore but the other is still producing quite a lot. I never let them get over filled and always put their milk into the same bag to freeze for soap. Today I saw a lot of blood at the bottom of two bags. How does one dry up a goat while trying to fix mastitis? We had a run of it this year and I milked her 3-4 times a day for a few days and she was fine after that. I’ll milk them into two separate pails next milking to figure out who is the culprit but when should I milk them and how often should I milk the one with mastitis?
