How to Dry Off Your Dairy Goat

How to dry off your dairy goat.

Most goat owners keep their dairy goats in milk for approximately 9-10 months. Once a goat is bred, she should be dried off (allowed to stop producing milk) 2-3 months before she kids again, so that she can put her body's energy into growing her kids.

Silver Sunday and Being Thankful

And the words of the Lord are flawless, like silver... Psalm 12:6 NIV

I am thankful to the Lord, my God, for:

- the beauty of migrating butterflies
- goldfinches feeding on the wild sunflowers' seeds
- a close-up view of a red-tailed hawk
- a "first egg" from our pullets
- harvesting sweet potatoes
Silver Sunday

Go to the ant, you sluggard;
    consider its ways and be wise!
It has no commander,
    no overseer or ruler,
yet it stores its provisions in summer
    and gathers its food at harvest.
Proverbs 6:6-8 NIV
