Default Precocious udder

Will the milk in a precocious udder always be yucky? If nit prego, should I leave it alone or milk it out/treat it? This goat is new to me as owner was moving and couldn't take her. Hasn't been bred in 3-4 yrs. Suggestions?

Sounds like they dried her up and what is left in there is I think whey...just a milky water sort of stuff, I would leave it alone unless you want to dry treat her. Is she pregnant? when is she due if she is? I have a doe even when she is dry still has something in there. It hasnt bothered her udder.

With this goat I wouldn't think it is a precocious udder this is just old milk I would milk her out and dry treat her if you plan on ever breeding her. Throw this milk away,

i believe by definition a precocious udder is a developing udder in a young goat prior to breeding or kidding

Ya what Leanne said.


I would milk her out and dry treat her.
