Milk Maids

Blueberry and Meels are finally living up to the dairy in Nigerian Dwarf Dairy Goat.

Blueberry likes the process: get up on milking stand, put head into stanchion, eat grain, get milked. When that cream (Nigies have the highest butterfat percentage of all goats) streams into the cup, I remember that she nearly died in July, and I think, Every drop is a miracle!

In keeping with her nonconformist personality, Meels is somewhat fidgety and less cooperative, but her milk flows easier than Blueberry’s. Little Moey still nurses her mama at night, but even so, Meels gives as much as Blueberry.

I’d never milked before, but Hubby grew up on a dairy farm, so we soon got the hang of goat milking. Humans have been milking animals for eons, but I doubt any have been much, if any, more proud of the results!

“…Drink deep of God’s pure kindness. Then you’ll grow up mature and whole in God.” –1 PETER 2:3 (MSG)
