Bootsie is a nigi/pygmy cross, my eldest at 8 years old. She freshened February 2008, at her peak, nursing triplet bucklings, I got a 12 hour fill on her and she put out a bit over a quart. Now at just over 8 months fresh, I barely get a pint on a 24 hour fill, she has had BOSS as well as calf manna on top of her regular 18% feed, free choice browse, mixed grass hay a few alfalfa cubes and always fresh water......with all this the last 2 months I figured I'd see an increase.....but haven't. Normally she would be dried off and bred for next year but her age is keeping me from "chancing" it....is she "conditioned" to the slack in production or would this be expected from a goat of her "make". How long is "normal" for a goat to be milking? BTW...she isn't fat so I know she's not keeping the goodies for herself.
