Ruby 4-29-17 drying off. She's not
thrilled that she isn't being milked and grained right now! LOL

nice doe Ruby has matured into! She is quite the milker too!
Ruby freshened in mid March with a gorgeous well attached
easy to milk udder. Her teat placement is really nice and
her production is awesome! Ruby consistently milks a half
gallon a day and often goes a little over. She is out
producing all of the other yearling milkers easily! This doe
is a MILKER! She'll be something to watch next year too!
Ruby's daily pounds is about 4.3-4.5 as of mid April. She
has already milked over a hundred pounds in just under a
month. I would easily say she'd earn her milk star if we
were on milk test this year. Such a shame we didn't get on
test this year! Oh well, there's next year!
Ruby's first freshening udder on
3-24-17 at 9 days fresh with a 12 hour fill.
Ruby's quite the productive doe! She's already caught Oracle on
production and has nearly produced 4lbs too!

I still don't have the milk machine in use and my carpal tunnel is

Ruby's Milk Record
2017 Barn Records
Unofficial as of 5-1-17
First Freshening, started milking 3 days into her lactation.
Drying off due to hand numbness starting 5-2-17.
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!
