I have a question about goat colostrum. Today my Nubian is having thick white vaginal discharge, hanging in a long stream of about 8 inches. She's due sometime feb/mar (pasture bred) so it's possible she's nearing labor. Her udder has completely filled today. I decided to check for colostrum, scraped the plug off the left teat and then expressed some colostrum. It came out the yellowish color of colostrum but in a toothpase/gel consistency and then fell to the ground, remaining intact like gel! Her udder does not feel warm to the touch and she's not acting sick but her udder does feel firm. Normal eating and normal pellet poo. Not sure if that is quite normal or not, but I would think not. Is she developing mastitis or is this normal for goats? If not normal, what do I need to do? I do have PenG on hand. This is my first time attempting to express goat colostrum prior to kidding, so I feel foolish asking. I did not attempt to express from the right teat.
