    I have a 46 acre flower farm and let my goats roam to help keep the weeds down. One female, an awesome meat goat producer, has dragging udders that get scratched when walking through the brush. Is there such a thing as an udder cover I can put on her to make her more comfortable - and keep her happy wandering around with the rest of the herd?

    Maybe you could make her one of these in her size.

    Both Hoegger's and Caprine Supply have udder supports that will both help hold her udder up and keep it from getting scratched.
