Privacy. Would you take your daughter to milking time?

Privacy. Would you take your daughter to milking time?
Goats don’t care as much about privacy as family ties. Goat MIlk Soap mother goes to milking time with her daughter.

Taking your daughter to milking time is not what most cows or goats do on a commercial dairy farm. Most farms separate their young stock from the adults at birth, or as soon as possible. We do not.

In the past, we did not let a goat bring a young daughter to milking time because it would cause disruption to the process of getting the milk. But with the changing of staff, and different operators’ preferences, sometimes these things are allowed.

Another mother takes her daughter to milking time, and we miss out!

In the YouTube.com video, we captured a mother and a young one. The sight has heartened many viewers. We also have another one, where the goat kid was allowed to drink from one side of the udder, but not the other. In this second video, it is worth noting, the young goat is even drinking from her own mother! You may wish to view this one too.

You may notice these two videos are from the Smith Family Soapmaker’s channel, Goat Milk Soap NZ, which is a #GoatWatch channel. We post videos of goats, their kids, and related scenery. We are currently posting every week. Some of the content is rather short, and over time we will produce longer content as well especially of mothers who want to take their daughter to milking time.

Here are the 2020 Triplets in mid December 2020. In this video we go and talk to some goats after the milking session. Unlike cows in a milking shed, they don’t automatically file out to pasture.

There is another post here on this new website which relates to the same triplets. If you haven’t already seen it, it is worth a peep. The link is here. https://goatmilksoap.co.nz/curious-kids-episode-13th-october-2020-were-2020-triplets/
