5 year old nubian mother came from cheese farm only used for milking. She got pregnant so they sold her to us. We didn't milk from then on because babies were within 2 weeks away. She had baby girl 3 days ago I milked the colostrum out but now mommas right side is completely swollen like a balloon and her teets are flabby and empty. Anybody gave any ideas for me first time goat owner?

Sometimes when teat is empty and udder full there is a plug deep in the teat that needs to be softened and milked out. Do warm compresses deep knead and massages and milk..repeat. use a good udder balm. When you try to milk..start high where the teat meets the udder and work it down. Hopefully this is all the issue is..

Good luck
