Hey everybody! I love this site so much-I wish I hours to read and pour over everything. I am a cow lover who was given 2 Nubian/Sable does by my Aunt who has been in dairy goats for ? many years! ANYWAY...Molly has one adorable kid (a boy-not sure what they are called before they are fixed). We will keep him as a wether for my son to play with and hopefully pull a small cart. All very far down the road! TODAY'S QUESTION is pressing and a little serious! Molly has always been incredibly wild-UGH! She has been better since kidding and I have been able to milk her several times. I don't have a standchion so I am wallowing around on the ground for now-I can see that's going to get old fast and I am searching around here for a quick fix to that! I am leaving her boy on her and she is still producing plenty. I am worried that I am not getting her bag emptied-I am FIRST TIME MILKER and I feel like I'm really doing well all things considered, but she is from strong milking background and I am only getting 1-2 cups. Also...slap me now-I know I am thinking to myself "suck it up cupcake" because I cannot put the milk in my mouth! I am milking into a stainless steel water bottle and filtering it though a white coffee filter and still am freaked out! How many people seriously drink raw milk and survive? heh I know I am over reacting. Any advice would be so appreciated. And I can already see why goats wrap themselves around your heart and never ver let go!!
