    For those who do and ave done 4h and ffa what would you suggest to start t show currently we have goats chicken ducks geese and rabbits. We can't do lots of the animal we are going to show. My daughter isn't quite old enough but she wants to one day but I want to make sure we start with that we can handle I do mind a goat, rabbits or fowl but we can not do pigs, cows,or sheep as I cant afford to get multiple for a herd of those with current space as well

She kick me, she laid down, the she would get up really fast as I am trying to manuver her and (roof on milk stand no helping) hits me which has me hit my head then as I am trying to tie her I am having to hold he up . We where were .could just mil her no problems so nothing sure what happened, but it made me tempted tp sale her.

    I would check for mastitis or sores on her udder, or possibly low calcium? I'm not am expert, but something may have happened if she was real calm and just started acting up.

    Well I Say calm but mostly for her. She hasn't any signs of issues. She let's the kids nurse doesn't seem to have an issue. I check o again but. Didn't see any .Problem. When does the milk start to taste better? She on week three of lactating and her milk a strong almost gross flavor I never had that with her sister

    oh and by calm it's more I can milk with the machine but once I take them off and (sometimes this is the other way around) she says she done so I have to tie her atthat points to mil her out sometimes put it back on but she throws a fit. Sometimes she ok with me milking by hand and some times she gets mad about that machine and sometimes she just doesn't want to be milked
