I am thinking of this topic for future times. I would like reasons to the dry off thing, compared to just weaning the kids.I have read were people just remove the kids and it is finished deal. Then I have read were you have to milk her out a little each day. I would love a break down on this suject to fully understand what needs to take place. Please keep in mind that I do milk the goat, if that has something to do with it.
