I have a kinder doe that I just got on June 2nd. I have been milking once a day and getting a quart a day. If I started milking her 2 times a day would I get more milk, or should I wait until her next freshening, since this is her 1st. I started on milking her once a day because that is what her previous owner was doing.

Switching to 2x, 3x, or even 4x a day is simple. Just go ahead and do it.

Cutting back is more challenging and stressful on the doe. Simply because of the knowledge tendency to know routine. Use discretion. We don't have problems but we wait until they drop in production enough and "wean" them to once a day.
