We live at about 7200 ft. elevation so our does are not clipped due to the cold weather. All photos are taken of unclipped udders, and while nursing kids. We do not milk our goats at this time except when needed to feed a kid or save colostrum, or to check the amount of milk they are giving. Milk production records are not available. However, we carefully select for udder capacity, attachment, and teat size and position, as well as a doe’s producing ability based on the appearance of her kids. Our goats are registered with ADGA, tatooed, disbudded, and regularly tested, wormed and vaccinated.
