dairy goat question ? - Page 2

post #11 of 13

My sister-in-law has a goat that had a difficult pregnancy 3 or 4 years ago.  She hasn't bred her since.  The goat still gives milk.

Just curious.  Is this goat a Saanen? Years ago I had a neighbor who had a Saanen doe that came into milk before she was bred.  She gave eight pounds of milk a day for years without ever kidding. Her owners were thrilled.

The obscure we understand eventually. 
The obvious takes a little longer.

This goat is a LaMancha/Boer cross.  The goat did have a kid once but almost died.  She's been milking her year round for 4 years now.  Since she has more milk than she can use or sale at the moment, she is only milking her once a day.
