Our Dairy Goats

After a fair amount of thought and some great information from people like appway willing to share their knowledge, last weekend we picked up two dairy goats. Daisy is a Saanen, about 5 years old, and just kidded a couple of weeks ago. Lilly is about 3 weeks old and a Toggenburg/saanan/alpine cross. Even though Daisy is not her mom it only took a day for her to accept Lily as her own. They are both from Sunnybrook dairy where the wonderful owners were so patient and considerable time out of their busy schedule to answer questions, help us choose our goats, then trim Daisy's feet and disbud Lily. It took a few days for Daisy to settle in but now she seems happy as her milk production has gone up dramatically and she's already producing more than enough milk for our needs. So far in addition to enjoying fresh milk I've made yogurt a couple of times. Soon we'll try making some cheese.

Re: Our Dairy Goats

Very nice goats.   :wine:      I really get discouraged when I see pictures of garbage type goats.   If you're going to have them, have "good" ones.   :congrats:

Re: Our Dairy Goats

we should keep in touch over the next few weeks. I bet we learn a lot about goats, in a short amount of time. :excited:

Re: Our Dairy Goats

We should definately keep in touch natuerespace. I know I have lots more to learn but so far I have no regrets, I am really enjoying this! Personallity wise they are both just lovely. And the milk is wonderful My yogurt today with cherries from our orchard picked last summer was amazing. And espresso in a cup of milk is a great ways to start the day.

Re: Our Dairy Goats

:eat: SO jealous! I love goat cheese ! We are considering the next additions to our little farm. SO far its chickens by the dozen, 3 turkeys and 3 grey Toulouse geese. I want milk goats for sure, but I need fencing!
