I should add that, as predicted Pia produced her own body weight (70 kg) in milk in the last 18 days; sweet, creamy milk that doesn't smell of goat.
Its not necessary to start milking at 5.00am as with cows, goats are much more accommodating and relaxed about the milking routine. They don't mind visitors, let their milk down easily and don't kick the milk pail. Pia does get bored though if you are milking too slowly.
