Hi I have a 2 year old second freshener Lamancha. She had a single last year and Twins this year on March 19. Sire is alpine. The twins are gaining fast. And growing well. Lamancha momma has little milk when I milk her same as last year. I also have a 3 year old second freshener Nubian. She also had a single last year but this year had triplets! Their sure is Nubian. The triplets don't seem to be gaining as well as the twins (maybe just because triplets) but momma has a ton of milk. last year I couldn't get much until I separated kids from momma a at night but this year Nubian momma is giving 6 cups in the morning and has her kids with her at night. She also refuses them milk quite often, or so it seems. She is full in the mornings. I'm afraid she will explode if I separate the kids at night since she is full in the mornings with them staying with her. Her peak last year was 2.5-3 quarts with just one morning milking. The rest of the time she had her doeling on her until she weaned her around 8 months. Am I looking at huge production from this girl? Is it okay to separate kids at night even though she is so full already? Thankfully I got a new milker from perry's and won't have to hand milk. I will start using it when I separate kids at night. Another question regards that miker. When I put the inflation on my finger to time the pulsations, my finger gets red and a bit tender from the suction. Is that normal? We just got it and the pulsator wasn't going like it should so we already did a rebuild on it. I called mike and he never called back on that issue so we just rebuilt it. I still need to clean it after the initial run and rebuild of the pulsator but I think I'm ready to go.
