I wondered about the East Frisian milk sheep. Most of the dairies seem to leave them about 6 inches long, is there really a problem with the sanitation of the rat-tail? Do the tails serve any function?

When we raised meat sheep we took them off at 2 vertebrae so I'm quite aware of the process.

Given a 2 day old bummer to be raised for milk, would you bother?
