Hi. I want to run a question past you experienced goat milkers. I milk Dexter x Jersey cows. I sharemilk with the calves. When the cow is first fresh, I milk once a day until she isn't producing so much that's she's uncomfortable if I don't. Then I milk 2 or 3 times a week, more or less as I need the milk. I just separate them several hours prior to milking. On the days I don't milk, the cow and calf are together all the time. Then, when I wean the calf, I milk daily (a bit less every day) until she's ready to dry up. Is anyone doing something similiar with goats? I am considering milk goats for the coldest winter months (much cleaner animal to keep up in and around the barn in the winter) and milking my cows during the summer months. I don't want to go back to milking daily for the duration of lactation and twice a day is out of the question, too busy for that. Any thoughts or suggestons would be appreciated.
