I have a couple first fresheners that are relatively hard to milk due to their small teats. I was wondering if it is important to milk them for a while during their first freshening or is it ok to breed them as soon as possible and dry them off? I'm just wondering if milking is important during the first freshening for easier milking the the future. Do the teats and udder need to stretch during the first freshening? They both kidded in May and I just started hand milking about 2 weeks ago. Thanks.
