Yesterday was our first test of our 2020 305-Day Milk Test. As hoped, Krebs Farm OT Clairebelle 2*M 2*D AR did great, producing 4.7 lbs. of milk. Krebs SR Clairify 3*M 3*D (who has kidded--more on that in my next post) also did very well, especially for having only freshened on February 17, producing 3.5 lbs.
Beginning a Milk Test each year can sometimes feel so overwhelming--milking, planning, cleaning, scheduling, paperwork--but it's worth it. Even though it is quite a commitment, nothing is better than a 305-Day Milk Test to show what a doe is truly made of in the milking department. Ten months of milking every morning and night gives you a highly accurate evaluation!
