It is that time of year again. The babies are all born – the baby goats and the lambs. They are hopping around the barn and doing kamikaze flips all over the place. We have sold all the baby goats and the final new parents are picking the last two up this weekend. Thus, it is MILKING TIME on the farm! We still have several little ones that we purchased for new breeding stock (dair goats) and have a blind little lamb that we bottle feed as well. So, that will continue. But, as of now the babies are off the mamas and I will be milking twice a day for the foreseeable future. I love this part of farming as it is so very peaceful to be in the milking zone with my does.
So, what does the morning look like for all of you who are wanting to get into dairy goats? I am going to take you through my morning steps from kitchen to barn to kitchen again in terms of all things dairy.
