Shoutbox

cathymb6: I have a new calf, not sure when to start milking heifer. Saw somewhere within the first 12 hours. Is this correct? Jul 6, 2014 13:32:48 GMT -5 *
mommamary: Researching dual purpose milk and fiber goats. Does anyone have recommendations? Jul 7, 2014 19:01:46 GMT -5
mommamary: I am researching goat breeds that have Both good milk and fiber for spinning. Are there any good ones? Jul 7, 2014 19:03:44 GMT -5
Jenny at Sagehill: Problem w/fiber goats is they put their energy into fiber, not milk. Cashmere goats might work, but their fiber needs a special dehairing machine to remove a LOT of coarse hair from a bit of cashmere. Jul 13, 2014 12:05:01 GMT -5
Jenny at Sagehill: Angora goats might work except they aren't bred to milk much or longer than their kids require. They're rather smaller animals and can be finicky. Jul 13, 2014 12:08:13 GMT -5
beelady: i had an angora doe that was a precocious milker. huge udder too... right now im crossing angora buck on nubian does saving the doelings that show mohair/cashmere and breeding those onto angoras.. Jul 16, 2014 7:42:26 GMT -5
romal: hi there..does anyone know if the Heifer Diary will continue & how Joann is doing? Jul 17, 2014 14:16:14 GMT -5
Chatty Kathy: I've been out of the KFC, milking mass quantities. I cannot seem to find Joann's current diary entries and saw a post asking how she is doing. She has been such an inspiration and help to me. I'd like to know how she is. Jul 28, 2014 19:52:58 GMT -5
sparkey75: Why can i sometimes see the avitars and cute pics on the side of the page by everyones name and sometimes not? Jul 31, 2014 7:27:30 GMT -5
erinnny: Because not everyone changes their profile pic. ;) Aug 11, 2014 15:31:49 GMT -5
