The reason I want goats is for their milk.
My older sister has goats that SERIOUSLY actually give three gallons of milk per day!
Baby sister, her goats aren't quite as good, but still pretty good... But with milking only once a day, she gets over a gallon.
Anyway, we haven't all travelled together as a family for years..... And if we ever did again, we would just plan to dry her up, or keep the kids on her for when we would be gone.
The kids would be the ones milking, and they could rotate as to who did it...
3 of the kids are excited, and totally on board. 1 of the other boys said, OK, but only if we get rid of one chicken breed.
We all voted... We are getting rid of the d'anver males. So, down to only one bantam breed.
is getting the paddock goat proof, and then finding a goat!
Person in town with milk goats gets only HALF a gallon, to a max of one gallon, per goat, and that is with twice a day milking. I think that sucks.
