Having raised dairy goats I know signs of labor vary with individual, but I'm looking for general signs for my Jersey. She is due in July - August, not sure of the exact date. Today she was getting up and lying down and getting up.... and I realized that I know what to look for when calving is closer but I don't know what to look for a little earlier. Can you all share your experiences with calving? Do some cows show signs as ealry as a month ahead of time? Some of my goats start swelling andhaving a discharge 4 weeks ahead of schedule and one of my Alpines bags up 5 weeks ahead. Some don't shwoany signs until the day they freshen. Karma isn't really big in the belly yet, but she is bigger than normal. She's dried up now and her udder is loose.
