Hello, Lyubov Viktorovna! Please tell me why the goat began to give milk if it had not yet lambed. She is not even pregnant. (Helena)

What's the matter?

Hello, Elena. It's okay that the goat began to give milk ahead of time. Such a phenomenon is quite common and experienced kozovody, at least once so faced with it. This phenomenon is more common in dairy goat breeds. In the common people, the milk from such a goat is called "girlish". It can appear at any age. There were even cases when newborn goats already had a swollen udder.

What to do?

When the "girl" milk appears, it is not necessary to take special measures in relation to the animal. But let this matter take its course also should not. If the udder is not swollen strongly, then the product is not passed. Sometimes the milk texture disappears the next day, and sometimes the goat is milked right up to the birth. Then how lucky.

As you have already correctly noticed, if the udder is strongly swollen, then the product should be broken. Otherwise, the failure to take any action is fraught with mastitis. Of course, the raw materials may simply burn out, but then casein clots form inside the milking organ. They will definitely affect the health of the nursery in the future.

So, it is advisable to milk the two of them, one works, the other strokes the animal, and occasionally treats him with something tasty. So, the goat will become accustomed to the milking process and will always associate it with something pleasant. Thus, it will give more milk per milk yield. As soon as the "girl" product disappears, you can again run the animal. Continue to distribute it no longer worth it.

Also remember that now you need to keep an eye on such a goat all the time. Due to early swelling of the udder, she has become more prone to mastitis.

What about milk?

"Maiden" milk is no different from ordinary goat milk. However, it is not recommended to drink it raw. Before use, it must be boiled. In its raw form, you can give other cattle, for example, pigs. An excellent option would be if the young goat itself will drink its product. So she will regain the strength spent on the early production of raw milk.
