    Actually being able to move comfortably is important. A doe that is roached up and struggling to walk around her udder is noted and placed lower. Udder has to be on a body that is not struggling to carry it.

    Hello everyone. Your critique will be appreciated. This is her 3rd freshening. She was affected with mastitis in her 2nd freshening.

    The kids are 50% Saanen x 25% Boer x 25% Jamunapari

    BTW what can one do to improve udder tissue health?

    Can udders like this ever be improved? Are they worth working on?

    There's a lot of great information on this thread!

    Her rear attachment/height/teat placement don’t look great IMO. She has a nicely defined medial, tho. She looks like she has good capacity from what I can see. How is her foreudder and udder texture?

    I’ve never heard of Jamuniparis before. :)

    Fore udder is not much. She had about 2 litres in her last lactation. Not more. Texture is good. But not very soft. Doesn't deflate all the way in after milking. Her top udder, closer to her stomach is some what meaty

    Jamunaparis are ancestors of Nubians. I have some pictures of them on my Facebook page. You'll love them

Her left teat leaks up high at noon she extremlex full another reason I milk. I will post some better pictures tomorrow I thought. Had a good one but apparently not o_O. I get 600 ml from her which is nearly one quart jar. I like her udder support more than her sisters but I like the size of her sisters teats. And she harder to milk out I swear I think I am done and the next thing I know there is still more it's a good problem to have lol.
