Hayy, can anyone tell me what milking fever is? Also, what causes it and do they need to have milk to have milk fever, or can they get milk fever when they are dried up? The reason I am asking is because we have a boer goat due to kid within this week or next week, and she is not eating a whole lot. We were'nt sure if she is getting milk fever, or getting sick, or just soon to have. Can goats get milk fever while they are springing and are about one to two weeks away from kidding?? Another question. Do goats slow down on eating before they are ready to kid? If so, normally how long after they start to not eat very much, will it be till they kid? Thanks, any information would be a great help!
