Milking a goat for the first time can be hard on both you and on your goat.
First fresheners are going through a lot of changes; first time giving birth, first time caring for kids, first time being milked. But you can help make some of these changes easier by preparing her for milking ahead of time.
Today’s video talks about how to get your goat used to her udder being touched so that she will be easier to milk when the time comes.

Could you please talk some on how much and what to fed a goat during the last 2 months of pregnancy, especially how much grain? Some info says none, some says few ounces, some say several cups?
I have found the more you fed them the better of they are when freshing occurs, I would always go with a few cups of grain, the are better off being a little fatter when the baby is born, there is so much they loose calorie wise when the last few months and producing milk the more high quality feed the better for the baby and mama!
What do you do when your new mom lays down on the milking stand while milking ?
excellent vedio, i appreciate your future endeavours in this regards
