2014 Lactation Now In Progress

 Summer 2013:

Since Grace did so well on her first extended lactation we decided to do it again -  keep her in milk for two years without freshening.  She, again, is doing great.  She has been milking for around 17 months now and is still out milking some of the other does - which is quite a feat since the girls are milking so great this year.

 Summer 2012:

Grace continues to amuse and amaze us.  She is such a clown, always goofing around.  Her latest trick it to shut the gate to the dairy deck so that she has it all to herself and the other goats are shut out.  She finds it entertaining to watch them trying to get onto the deck to wait their time to be milked.  Grace's other trick this year is to out produce all the other does.  She usually wins our informal daily milking contest. Once she is milked out and has had her complimentary animal cracker treat, she loves to chew on the bell that hangs on her collar.

Winter 2011: 

Grace finished her first lactation, milking for 18.5 months.  Even though she was still going strong in the milking parlor, we dried her off due to her advancing pregnancy.  For a goofball, the girl sure knows how to make milk!

 Summer 2011:

Grace decided not to kid this year so we kept her in milk.  She has now been milking for about 15 months and is giving just shy of a gallon per day.  Not bad for a first freshener that had only a singleton kid last year.

 Summer 2010:

Grace is still a clown.  About the only time she isn't fooling around is in the milking parlor.  She milked close to a gallon a day at peak - which is pretty great for a yearling first freshener.  After milking, then it's back to jumping on the Ranger (four wheeler), leading the goats out on browsing walks, and practicing her ear control.

 Summer 2009:

Every year we have a kid that is a clown.  This year her name is Grace.  Grace delights us with her antics and has a penchant for getting into trouble.  During our Linear Appraisal she insisted on breaking into the arena and stealing the show, so we put her in the "Prep Pen" where she promptly got her head stuck in the fence and remained there for over an hour.  She was quite content staying there since it was right in the way.  Finally when it was her turn to go into the arena to be appraised we extricated her, and then, just to show us that she can be a serious goat, she scored beautifully!
