I have been writing down the weight of the milk on a daily basis and it's interesting how the pounds of milk doesn't always correspond with the amount of milk.

I had almost 8 (just under, around 7.75 cups) cups of milk which equated to 3.71 pounds and a couple days later 7.25 cups of milk, which equated to 3.94 pounds of milk.

Just thought that was interesting. Both were with kids separated for 12 hours.

She is about 3 weeks since the birth of her bucklings.

Measure can be tricky as some count the foam lol. Im betting cream weighs more too?? Never weighed it but that might change a little from day to day.

I was able to measure 4.42 pounds this morning with a 12 hour fill. Kids were separated during those 12 hours. It was about 8.5 cups of milk. I find this so interesting. I always just measured in cups, but love measuring in pounds!

Is this considered maintaining barn records? I have seen people post barn records vs milk star-type records. I am very interested in doing this formally.
