Hello! I have dreamed of having Nigerians for milk for YEARS and this year we finally did it! I bought a doe and her 3 kids. Kids are just shy of 8 weeks so I have separated them at night for 3 nights now to try to milk, anxious for that first taste of fresh raw milk... well... first, milking is HARD! Second she freaks the minute her food is done and I’m scared to give her more (I give about 2 cups of a mix of dairy feed) and then third, the milk tastes sweet but then leaves this horrid carpet after taste at the back of my tongue. The kids hate it. So the tiny amount of milk I can get (maybe 1/4 cup if I’m being generous, tasted nasty. I feel like giving up! And we built all this fencing for her and the barn and invested in electric netting to move her on fresh greens all the time. she is out on fresh areas for about 8 hours. Always has access to hay water and baking soda. Minerals in the barn when she’s back. Currently the area she’s foraging in has grass, clovers and tons of weeds and small bushes. Quite a lot of ragweed (which I read can flavour milk). Should I keep her in the pen that has only grass and just let her eat mostly hay today to see if that changes it? Could her buck kid be the source? He’s not mounting her so I have him in there still but he occasionally smells Bucky. Blah. Sorry. Just feeling defeated. I was so excited.
