Do Show Goats Milk?
I hear it all the time, "Show goats don't milk" and I'm here to tell you that doesn't have to be the case. Of course a doe traveling almost every month of her lactation won't generally be a top ten contender but it shouldn't dry her up and shorten her lactation to 3 or 4 months.
Our goal is to show every chance we get and have does that milk respectably well for us between times. In my previous post I lamented that the best dairy diet isn't readily available here but in spite of the busy show schedule and average meals the girls of Hardwicke are getting it done.
