SGM Mooshine Elise


5-20-17 Elise clipped and filled in as though we were going to a show. I think she'd do well!
There are more photos from today's photo shoot below.

     I know you aren't supposed to have favorites but its hard not to when you have so many wonderful traits wrapped up in such a lovely dairy doe. Elise is the total package. She is beautiful, correct, dairy, easy and a joy to milk and the personality of a total angel. I retained her twin bucks in 2015 to the herd and have used both for the 2016 kidding season. For 2017 she produced twin bucks again. Darn! Maybe one day she'll finally give me some does. For 2017 all her doe kids will be retained, that is if she has any!


Elise's 3rd freshening udder on 3-24-17 at 6 weeks fresh and a 12 hour fill.
Elise is steadily producing in the 5lb range and has flirted with 6lbs several times.
Like always she's a dream to milk with great texture and teat and orifice size.

Elise 5-20-17 at 3 1/2 months into her lactation.

Elise's 2nd freshening udder 4-2-16. I have not clipped her while milking her this year.
She will likely be dried off before clipping this year so no new photos will be taken this year.

5-19-15 Elise as a 3 year old first freshener at 8 weeks fresh and about 8 hours fill. She dam raised her twin bucks and I took over milking after they were weaned.

Elise's Milk Record

Once a Day milking since last record.

78 371# - -  
Peak, which she did a few times throughout with just pelleted goat feed and alfalfa pellets during the whole lactation. Next year I'll make up a good milking ration. ~ 5.9# - -  
I had planned to go on milk test in 2017, but with the stresses of kidding season, milking and bottle raising (when we didn't set-out to do that initially) and the new barn work having to be finished to get the herd moved into, testing just didn't happen. I need the milk machine in order to stay on test the length of time required too and currently I'm still hand milking. So the plan is to get the room done in the new barn for milking, get the milk machine up and running and the goats acclimated to it this year and then 2018 go on official milk test through both MDGA & TMGR. In the meantime, like in previous years, I keep detailed milk charts for each goat and I weigh milk each milking. I will continue to do that and record it on each doe's page and next year work towards official records and milk stars!
