We had a Nubian freshen in Nov. and did well milking, a little over a gallon a day. She never did produce like the seller said she should. I didn't worry as a gallon a day for a Nubian isn't bad. I was planning on drying her up when all the does kidded this spring as she had a hard yr. Before we got her she kidded in March with quads, milked a few months and then was rebred and kidded in Nov. with twins. Her udder never looked like it was full. All of a sudden these last few days as my other does have started kidding her production has gone through the roof. Her udder is now full and she is giving close to a gallon a milking. Feed and management have not changed. So, here's the question. For those of you who freshen in fall do you notice a difference in production of those that kid in the spring? I'm just wondering what would cause the change in production after almost 4 months. Were going to keep her going now until at least June so that we can get her appraised. By the way she is a just turned 5, 6th freshener. thanks for the input.
