Ok, this is a problem I've never run across myself. My daughter who lives 8 hours from me, has a 3 yr old nubian doe who had a single buckling last spring (first freshening). The doe had no milk, and DD could never get any milk at all from her. She had the vet out, thinking it might be mastitis. Her udder was full and hard, but vet said no mastitis, and could get no milk either. So DD bottle fed the kid (no colostrum), and he did just fine, and she still has him (now a wether). Today the same doe kidded twin doelings, and same situation. Apparently full udder...unable to milk anything. She has made sure any plug was removed, used hot compresses and massage, and not one drop of milk. She says one teat is filled out like a normal teat with milk, but the other one is long and thin with no fullness to it, but neither can be milked. Has anyone ever experienced this? Any suggestions? DD has given the kids colostrum replacer, but was hoping for some advice or way to get this doe milking. The doe was bought at 3 months of age, and we are positive she had never kidded before last spring, so no history other than what I've told above. Never sick, never injured, up to date on vaccinations and worming, no fever, and today was day 155 gestation. Everything seems perfectly normal besides the milk situation.
