    It takes them a bit to settle down at a new place. When they learn the routine you won't have to do much more than open the gate. They will get on the stand and wait to be milked.

    Reminds me of my adventures milking my first two does. My alpine hated it! And when I got a decent amount of milk she would knock it over or get hair in it. And when I finally would get enough milk I was the only one who would drink it so a lot went to waste. I tried making cheese... the curds were thrown out on a constant basis so I gave up milking Saria and Spots.

    I plan on trying to milk Saria's daughter who was a bottle baby since Saria refused to let her milk as well. But I don't expect much of anything and I might be wasting time again.

    We had a goat that would not feed her kids, so we milked her several times a day to put the milk into bottles for the kids. I never had any problems like that, LOL. We would just walk right up to her and milk her. We didn't tether her or anything. [​IMG]

    Quote:Wish that had been my case. I got a few bottles off my girls for my bottle baby. I eventually switched to milk replacer.
