I have a wonderful Saanen doe who freshened 2 months ago and all of a sudden she develops a strange bitter flavor to her milk when everyone else's milk is perfect! I have tasted her milk directly from the teat and it does not taste goaty . . . it just tastes bad! It also does not foam like my other does milk does :hair: Everything I can think of that might fix it I've already tried and nothing's helping. :doh: The bucks are very far away from all my milkers Her Somatic Cell Counts were well under 1 million (so I assume she's not sick) Our milking conditions are extremely sanitary The barn does not have a strong odor and it is kept pretty clean I have left her inside for a week and fed only oats and rye hay to see if it was a bitter plant she was eating out in the pasture- no change She did the same thing last year, but she produces so much milk I want to keep her in rotation this year! Her mom and sister do not have this problem . . . and since her milk tasted great in the beginning of the year I don't believe the off-flavor is genetic. What can be causing this?
