This is our first year to get milk. We have one lactating doe, and she is only giving about a cup a day now from morning milking only. Yes, we do separate the kids from her at night. She had twins, but a new kid we bought also nurses her, so she really has 3. The most milk we've ever gotten from her is 2 cups. I don't like her condition, and I keep trying to feed her well, but she's picky about her feed. Rarely does she really dig in and eat all 2 cups of feed that we offer her twice a day. Sometimes she eats it all, other days she barely touches it. We let her out on pasture, but she's not a very agressive eater like our other doe. She won't stand on the bushes to eat. She's kinda lazy about it, and wants to be catered too. For example, she'll eat much much more if we pick the leaves for her. She loves the blackberries though, and we take her to them everyday for about an hour or two. But that doesn't seem to be enough to put the weight on her. I think it's a combination between her being a picky eater and a dainty eater. What else can I do besides stop milking her entirely. As it is now, I've only milked her about 2 wks total out of the 2 months of her lactation anyway because I don't like her condition. Her condition is about a 1.5 to 2. I'm used to seeing her at 3-4. She was about a 3 when she kidded, but rapidly dropped the weight even though we were graining her. I'd give her more grain, but she usually wastes the grain we give her. I have thought about changing her grain to see if that could be it since she is such a picky eater.
