how do you train a goat to accept being milked? I heard that pygmy goat milk is good so i was going to try daisy's milk when the babies are taken away for weaning time. she absolutely hates human hands even near her udder. i use my goatfencing as a restraint when i worm her, so it holds her head. I was thinking hobbles or maybe two cinder blocks to tie her back legs to while i milk? will she get used to this? should i offer treats of some sort? hehe she's gonna be soooo mad at me when she realizes what im trying to do!! hehe. when do i start weaning? the last two goats i brought home at 4 weeks of age, and did fine. i think im going to do the same. boston, the last one brought home at 4 weeks, is a total lapgoat, and my breeder said that he has never had a problem weaning at 4 weeks as long as they get grain and attention. if they dont eat i suppose i could always return them to mommy for another week or so.
