It's day 8 since freshening and Lightning's milk still tastes yucky! I'm getting so impatient. :flame: Is this normal? I've heard of people drinking it at 4-5 days. I think it's better than it first was but it still has a kind of rotting, off taste to it.

I keep milking her and waiting........she gave a pound and a half just this morning. It's not wasted b/c I'll give it back to her buck once we pull him off and bottle feed him. But when can WE drink it?

I gave it 2 weeks, because from what I have read here, the milk can taste "off" for that long. I have a part alpine that her milk was "off" tasting for the first 5 weeks! Now it is great.
