This will be Star’s first freshening so I’ll be training her to the stand and pail. I always train my doe kids to the stand from a very early age, that way it isn’t such a shock when the time comes. I give them a little grain and let them put their heads in the stanchion to eat. I lock them in, brush them, and rub their udders. That way they know what it’s about before the time comes.
Well that’s about how things go here at Goodwife Farm. Hope your kidding season goes fabulous and you have mostly doelings!
Till next time…………GOD BLESS FROM GOODWIFE FARM!
