Milk Testing

CBF Nigerians just took our first two does to a one day milk test. At the moment I am not sure either doe will get their stars. Joie, who is my super milker - dropped her production for the morning milk out.
She usually gives me about 2#s per milking and she went down to 1.4# and did 2.0#s in the evening. I still don't understand what all goes into giving your goat her star but I am glad we tried. It was a great experience. PrairieWood Player who is our Flying Goat Jazzy Blues' granddam also went on test and I know she milked out 2.2#s in the morning. I am very excited as Jazzy and Kidd's moms are both doing well so far. I have my eye on another doe who I'd like to buy a buck from in the future. She was the breed leader for butterfat, starred last year, and is one win away from her MCH. SOMEDAY!!!! My doe Joie's brother is now at Prairie Wood so she will be using him in the future for anyone who is looking for those milky lines besides mine here at CBF.
