What a Difference a Week Makes!


I had three human kids and it took me a lot longer than this goat to regain my figure.  Course now we’ve got to get her headed in the OTHER direction, weight-wise.  Lots of grain, free choice alfalfa pellets, full hay feeders….it’s still often-times a struggle with high-producing dairy goats, to get them up to a good weight in time for appraisals, shows, and farm visitors.  The goal is to feed them really good while they’re  pregnant,  so they’ll have a few extra pounds after giving birth.  You can see that everything Mikey was ingesting was going to produce those 4 kids she had last Thursday.  And now she’s milking 8-9 pounds per day and it increases by a few ounces each day!
