Doeling is now about 12 hours old. She is nursing often, but only on one side. I tried to put her on the other side, but she won't take it. Other side is getting hard.....should I milk it out? I do plan to milk this doe for family consumption in a few weeks. Thanks!

I would milk that side out and the other side, if the kid gets a little hungry she will start nursing on the other side. I had a buckling do that this year, and eventually he started nursing both sides evenly.
