Mini homestead dairy goats

I was happy to read another blog that said their Nigerian Dwarf goats gave about a cup of milk a day in one milking. Not happy at the low amount, but in the knowledge that my milking doe is actually on target since she gives close to a pint a day in two milkings. Some days are better than others, and I don't really know why but it averages out to enough to put into my morning coffee plus have some extra for cooking or occasionally drinking.

In another week or so, we'll be pulling the new doeling off the mama goat during the daytime and milking the mama goat in the evenings. Then, we'll let the doeling back in with her mama overnight. We're just waiting for her to have a real good start, so figured around 2 weeks old she'll be ready for that extended away time. I already know they will cry a LOT during those hours. The mama goat is very devoted.
