So having just slowly been changing into a homestead I have been adding new things to my life to test them and see what works best for me I was raised on a farm but got away from it alittle as I got older but when I moved back to the farm in my own little place I started needing the farm life again it started with 2 chickens and a dog. I added a garden then quail to meat chickens and meat rabbits, now being winter in PA I have my 3 breeding rabbits in my chicken pen with my new laying stock all raised from eggs and will be putting up the meat chicken temp pen shortly but as I don't like to take on more then I can handle I pushed last years project off til this year (fingers crossed). Goats when I was younger we had a few here and there but never dairy goats and I have been wanting some for a while now and have been looking into fencing where to put the pen how big a milking stall all of the things that might go missed by someone but my question and problem is I work full time some days 10+ hours I am close to home now with a career change but the idea of getting up an extra hour early to milk just seems hard. So I was wondering if just leaving the doe with her kids during the day work then just have an evening milking for the milk I am going to harvest? Just the thought of getting up at 330am to milk a goat before work is a lot. I plan to only start with one milking doe and maybe another doe for the company.
