    OK this is just crazy and i don't know how to explain it or how it happened. I milk my goats twice a day, 3 Sanaans. I average a gallon with each one. Well one of them did somthing very bazaar. I milked her day before yesterday and got 12 lbs. A gallon and half.
    Well yesterday and today she is back on track with around a gallon a day. Why would she give so much one day and then go back to normal? No milkings where skipped and always milk same time of day. Just a one day jump. Thanks for any ideas on this one.

    Did she get into a patch of "good clover" that the other two weren't privy to? :rolleyes: :shrug: It's the only thing that comes to mind......otherwise it "just happens"....... :rolleyes:

    Perhaps she is about to go into heat. Sometimes they will give more just before heat, then drop off during. :shrug:
