    Same issue OP! My two does currently in milk were bred in May, so I was planning to discontinue milking them at the end of this month. Well, they both had bloody discharge for 2 days, so they may have miscarried. If that's the case, I don't want to give up the milk for nothing. Anyone have suggestions on what they would do?

    You can just pull some blood and send it to Biopryn. It’s like $4 for a pregnancy test. Very accurate.

    I consider that quite cost effective.
    I need to know soon if kidding supplies must be bought, which is a small hunk of money this time of year. $4 Is a better investment than just buying everything for nothing right now!

    I all but gave up on fall kids, but in the past few days she's plumped up a bit.

    Again, should be due second or third week October.

    What do you think?
