I haven't been getting a fantastic milk yield from one of my does recently. I think it was a combination of a bad time with bloat and some not so great hay. She is fully recovered from the bloat and we got a much better bale of hay and her production has started to go back up, hurray! I milked her out and though I just had to judge by what it looked like in the pail, I think there was about a quart. I was almost done milking my other doe (into the same pail) and it looked like I would have about two quarts, the most I have ever gotten in one milking. I was thrilled and thinking about how great it would be to get that much every milking. The doe I was milking isn't a kicker so she isn't hobbled like I have to do with my other one. I think a fly or something must have bugged her, because just as I was daydreaming away, she flicked out her back foot and then landed it square in the bucket. I just about cried, all that lovely milk wasted. . At least I will get more later today, but I was really looking forward to putting up two quarts instead of the almost one quart I have been getting.
