After you breed your goat, you will need to dry her off 6-8 weeks before she has her babies. This gives her a chance to rest and regain nutritional stores. Plus, this gives you a break from milking, and can be an excellent time to plan a vacation. (Just saying. Finding relief milkers can be difficult in the city.) The first time I had to dry off a goat I wasn’t sure how to do it. With a bit of research I soon realized that drying off a lactating goat is one of the less complicated things about goat keeping. Thank goodness!
