Hi everyone, I am looking for some more info on dam raising. I am contemplating dam raising my kids this year pending negative CAE test results on my does. How many of you dam raise? How do you do it? Do you separate the kids at night and milk in the morning? How much do you milk off? Does it save any hassle/fussing? I am having my second human baby in July and looking for a way to "streamline operations" so to speak, for this year at least. Do you find your does lost condition with the kids sucking them so often? I was wondering if any of you dam raise AND show? How well does that work? I am willing to put the extra time into socializing and handling the kids. I just don't know how it would work logistically for showing? We dam raise our Jersey babies and they really thrive on their mamas. They sure do fuss a lot more at the shows than the bottle babies though. Wondering if you've found the same with goats or not. We milk once/day with our cows. Thanks in advance for your replies.
