Melody and Dove, the dairy girls, are a month old already! They are a couple of good looking kids. Better than last years by far, out of the same mom. Lily's udder is doing better this year, too. I had to milk her for a couple of weeks before the kids were born so it didn't get mastitis, and gave her lots of garlic and vitamin C. She's got a good udder now, nice and soft and plenty of milk for these two, and a little left over for me. I keep the kids on their moms till they are three months old, then wean them and get all the milk myself. Dam raised kids seem to be stronger and healthier than bottle babies.
