I had advertised that I needed a Doe in milk for my current puppies. I have a litter of 11 beautiful Border Collies on the ground! Yippie! Here is a picture of one of the beautiful boys! He is darling. Took this today! A good friend said that he had a Doe which had given birth to two kids. Both Kids died He said the Doe had a lot of milk. I traded him a stock tank for this goat as he had what I needed and I had what he needed! I am told she is a Nigerian. But I don't know my breeds too well. What do you think? I get her home and her udders (The tips) do have milk. Not much. I was able to get about 2 cups from the tips of both udders combined. The udders (Upper) is hard as a rock I feared Mastitis! This girl had not been handled for milking before and was just pasture kept so it has been a struggle. Twice a day I have spent an hour massaging her udders. I am torn. I don't know if this is mastitis? As she does not seem to be in pain and I see no RED spots. I have done this for two days and my milk production is starting to get better. NOT Amazing! But better. For as large as her Udders are you would think I could get more MILK. NOPE! So... Mastitis or No? That is my 1st Question. Then, I am worried about the overall udder shape/ size! None of my goats have udders like this. When I got her they actually touched the ground. This is day and now they are about 3 in. from the ground. But still very low. This is why I was told her kids died. They could not nurse and were trying to nurse high. They did take them into the house to bottle feed but the cold and lack of nutrition after birth did them in. The family did try and save them. They were born overnight and it was in the teens, just so darn cold that night Has anyone seen Udders quite like this. My other goats are Nubian Cross, Mini Nubian, Mini Nubian Cross, Lamancha and Lamancha Cross... A bunch of MUTTS! None of them with Udders like this LOW HANGING, to the ground Looking for advice and knowledge please!
