I started milking my goat Mocha and it has been quite the fight getting her to allow me to milk. She tap dances and attempts to sit down on me. Of course she is perfectly happy to get the grain but does everything she can to stop me from milking..... and I do it anyway.... She is one month and a week in-milk and I just started to milk her last Monday once a day. She is separated from her doeling overnight but I hear that normally people get 2-3 quarts a day w/ NDGs (two milkings) since Im milking only once at the moment I would expect to get about a quart a day but I am only getting a half-a-quart of delicious creamy sweet milk. Does the milk production start off small and ease in later to the higher amounts? She is bred for milking so she should be producing a decent amount. She eats rye/alfalfa/pasture grass 3 way and grain and acorns when she get the chance and she has free choice minerals. I did not worm her prenatally as I had spent the bulk of two weeks in the hospital around that time and it just didn't get done. She seems to be copper deficient despite free choice minerals and Ive been thinking about bolusing but I dont know much about it. If this amount (1/2 quart in a milking) is considered especially low please feel free to give suggestions but Id love to hear what is normal for others to get from there NDGs.
