Does Fias Co Farm have anything like that? They seem to have everything else. :) Just an idea. Hope you find what you need.

I would recommend you looking into getting the book "The Illustrated Standard of the Dairy Goat by Nancy Lee Owen" Caprine Supply sells the book and is the best price I have found for a brand new copy. IMO it is a book everyone who wants to judge their herd or even some day become a judge down the road should have.
Goat Keeping 101 has the ADGA LA booklet, it has mammary information.

Sorry I couldn't have been more help. :)

You can see alot on web sites...teats that point out to the leg...teats that come out of the udder on the side of the leg, Shoofly's candycane teats, teats that are really close together with no floor to the udder, really long teats. I even had a doe who had a section to her teat, one teat like a earth worm does...and yes it sort of looked like a penis :) Vicki

Thank you ladies. I came up with a really awesome site that breaks down the structures and their purpose.

www.agnr.umd.edu/dairyknowledge/goat/THE_UDDER.html

Really impressed with this one. I could put together a fill-in for Lindsey and Sherri. Help them identify parts and problems too. Tammy
