I feel this is a management decision. When this situation occurs on my farm, the doe goes into the regular milking program. All kids born here are bottle raised, so that means the doe's colostrum is milked out and fed to babies. Then, when the doe freshens, she enters a twice a day milking schedule which continues until she is 100 days bred. Babies are bottle fed for 100 days, unless there are special circumstances requiring longer feeding times.
