I will put together a goat post for you right after I get in from milking.
I do not measure each goats milk every day. I know when a girl isn't feeling well and it is reflected in her production. My measuring cup that I measure into is a plastic quart measuring cup. my old was was a huge measuring cup - like this one :
except it was plastic. So I just milk and see what it says - If it gets full I pour it into a jar and continue.
But...you have to undertand that I am whatever the opposite of nit-picky is. My husband is all about precision and perfection and I am a....little less so.
I worry about the feed too.
Goats should be okay though,I mean look at where the bedouin live! our goats will eat joshua trees! you can go out and hack off a couple of tree branches - (just not fruit trees-many are poisonous to goats) Goats LOVE branches! Chickens and goats can forage well.
That is one of the reasons I let the horse go. I can not feed a horse in an emergency situation. Dogs and cats can eat squirrel and rabbit.
I need to milk but then I will be posting too, I have a couple of things I need to put up. besides I am very curious what anna has going on....
