I have a 6 year old Oberhasli doe who is due in 10 days. 5th F. She is huge this year, and her udder is ...quite frankly....astronomical. I'm used to them filling up and getting really large and stretched and shiny before kidding, but this is way, way out of normal. There had to be 2 gallons, easy, in there. I know you aren't supposed to milk any out because of colostrum loss, but I just had to. She couldn't walk, she couldn't lay down, she was in pain. So I milked out a gallon and have frozen it in quart baggies. It was very yellow with colostrum. She still has a huge udder and she can now walk, but I may have to do it again. I know I will have to feed the babies the milked out colostrum to make sure they get what they need. Has this ever happened to anyone out there? What was the outcome?
