    Do ya'lls goats pee or poo while being milked? I have seen people say they milk them from behind and would like to know the answer to this question before I would find out myself.

    I haven't had one pee, but I have had one poop. She seems to do it when she is annoyed with me though, like if she finishes her grain before I finish milking.

    Whiss has pooped while milking before... and if I leave her locked on the stand to finish her grain she usually poops and pees all over it so that it is like a skating rink - but that doesnt really count as "during" milking. Now I always undo the latch to let her finish her grain so that she can remove herself when she gets bored and go poop/pee someplace else! (doesnt ALWAYS work) =]

    cant say I found that question to be silly at all

    nope never had one pee or poop while milking

    as for the milking behind I dont do that either, I have seen in old time pictures though and the goat just stand there no grain no nothing :shrug: I have thought no way my does would do that without either someone holding them or grain, maybe I will google it and see why they did it way back when

    The only time mine have peed and/or pood was as a FF when first learning to be milked or right after kidding (within the first 2 weeks of kidding), after that none at all.

    Be careful you don't get kicked. But, it could happen from the side too.

    Gee I said nope and they I had Chey, who had a retained placenta do a real icky as i was milking her, In her defence I had just given her an oxytocin shot and I was really happy to have that ick out that in.
