The DHIR Production page has been updated with our April test results. Volumes were a little down because the test followed a cold snap, but we are still very proud of our girls! Trixie is a mere 1# away from starring in butterfat. Her percentage was 9.3% this month! Compare that to a commercial gallon of whole cow milk which is only 4% butterfat! A couple of other girls are also doing very well and will easily star this lactation. The best part about participating in the 305 day production program is that you can see how each doe stacks up against each other, and see how different feed affects the lab results. It's so good to know where you are at and how we are doing as a producer. If anyone has any questions about getting started on milk testing, please let me know and I would be more than happy to help!
