Seems like only one side of the Udder is filling up?

    Hey everyone, I have a 2nd Freshener that had a large single buckling last year. Yes, he had a favorite side and as much as I tried, I could not keep her even. Well, this year she has kidded with twins, a doe and buck (4/26). At first I thought they were just drinking off of one side as she was always full on the other. So, I taped the side that I assumed they were nursing...well, 24 hours later the tape is still on and hardly any milk. What do you all think?? I can squeeze out some milk and it appears normal, testing negative for mastitis....all else normal health wise.

    Thanks,

    Paula

    milk out the other side completely and see if the kids will nurse off the small side. BUT did you acturally have a lab run the tests for mastitis or just use the cmt self test thingy's
