I got my goats home. My problem is that I don't have a stand. I have ordered one. I am going to call them tomorrow to see if they can rush ship it. Not being very bright, I thought I could improvise on the goat stand and be able to milk with just food in front of the goat. I had hoped to build one. And the lady I bought the goat from insisted that I pick her up today. I had hoped for a couple more days to prepare. My question is how much do I need to milk this doe to keep her in milk for a couple more days til I get my stand with stanchion? According to the lady I bought her from, she produces 6 pounds of milk a day. Which the lady said was 3/4 of a gallon. I don't want to ruin this doe for the stand. Tonight was an event. I had to have help. I can see how the stand is really an essential thing. As it was my first time, it took me quite a while to get better than a quart. Not to mention that I had to hold the does foot down.
