That's entirely up to you. How much do you want your girls to milk? I personally like no less than 1.5 gallons a day, which is about 12lbs.
Others think a gallon a day is too much, some only want half a gallon a day. How much do you want? I can tell you the stats all day long and turn away 1000 does because they aren't what I would want, but what do you want?

And reading the milk scores is easy just click the USDA data link on the pedigree page, and it takes you to any available milk records. Where it says milk, it'll have the list of numbers, that is how many pounds of milk they milked at the time. Protein, fat etc %'s are right next to it.
Here's her dam, Cutie.

Nope, that was her last test. So for about a gallon a day, you may get that, but she seems to go down in production about 5-6 months in, and a good milker should easily go 8 months, average of 10 before being dried off. You're actually supposed to go 10 months for the tests too.

I don't like critiquing them when they aren't bagged up yet, so I'll hold off on that until she is. Unless of course she is already..... :shock: :lol:

And my does don't get gunk all over their paintbrushes, because they don't touch the vulva, so you don't have to clip those off :lol:
