    This will be my first winter to be milking during winter months. Is there anything I need to do to protect my girls udders?

    Thanks

    We don't do anything special here in Nebraska and it gets pretty cold. No problems with the goats at all. Now the ducks and chickens are a diff. story.

    You're in Alabama...how hard can the winters be? Now, our buddy 30 miles from the Artic circle-?. Nothing but making sure the udders are dry when you turn them out.
