Ok, this is going to sound daft (like many of my questions!) but savannah, my 2 year old maiden milker is acting a bit strange.
Its fairly non-descript but I just feel something isn't 'right'. She is eating, drinking, has access to her lick, she has mineral supplements added to her feed, has been wormed within the past month, droppings are normal, temp normal but she's lying down more often, seems less interested in her little herd and their movements and her tail is droopier.
told you it sounds daft!! she has recently dried off from milking and her milk did start to taste like grass at the end (we did change hay supplier and it coincided with that ) not sure if its connected. there is nothing to suggest mastitis - did the washing up test and it was fine, udder pale pink, soft and not hot or bumpy.
do goats just have off day's like we do? its been 2 days now. And I am paranoid...
