Thank you @rachels.haven !

I am now upto 3.5cups of milk between the two does this morning. Unfortunately when Lillie’s bucklings left before her doeling her production dropped even with me milking her out twice a day so she gives between 1-1.5cups a milking right now. I am getting a dairy goat feed and some alfalfa pellets today to try and increase her production. Also planning on milking 3x a day when I can (good idea or no? I work 8a-6p Monday,Tuesday Thursday and Friday and 8-4sat so I was thinking of milking 3 times on my days off)

It is much better pics! And I understand....we were just trying to take pics of our kids...as our friend that raises goats said “These glorious animals have an attention span of 3.4 seconds". Lol 😅 And I think kids have less. But good job, you’re getting better at it. 👍
I almost think Maple has better rump width. Marigold is more angular and dairy. But both very nice.

@D and L Meadows any tips on getting good pics?😂 on a slightly more serious note, do you think if I milk before work, right after work and before I go to bed that it would improve production? I feel like Lillie is drying up even with being milked completely out(to the point I can’t get any even after bumping/massaging and letting her sit for a few mins) and am really needing her to pick up production because Bella is only giving about 2 cups a milking and I’m going through 2-3 cups a feeding, so really hoping to be able to up production on both


@MiniSilkys oh no! Hopefully not
