  • Milking & Marketing

    Ensure cleanliness in the milking place.
    Clean the udder with lukewarm water and dry with udder towel, strip milk on strip cup to check on mastitis and after milking dip the teats in teat dip solution to prevent infection.
    Milk the doe twice each morning and evening on regular schedule.
    When milking squeeze the teat down and avoid pulling the teat.
