The Country Diary of a GenX Woman

Success #2

Midge got on the Milking Stand for the first time! It 2013-09-16 16.14.06looked like little Rose was telling mum what to do after she was first to try the stand yesterday.  Apparently it can take a couple of weeks to train goats to get onto a stand, so I am very happy with the progress.  I put a collar on her this morning for more control while I massaged the cream into her teat and udder, and she did very well with this new development.  I took the collar off before leaving her for the night.  Hopefully everything will go as smoothly tomorrow.  When Brad comes back we will make some modifications to the feed bin so she stands a little bit further forward on the platform.
