We played a trick on Sky and changed which milking stand was hers. Now she trots into the parlor and looks around at the 6 stands. Once the other five stands are filled with the correct milker, then Sky easily jumps up onto the empty one. There she proceeds to make us proud with her amazing milk production.
Sky has made the ADGA Top Ten Breed Leader list for her amazing butterfat production last year!
Sky loves being a milker and has already earned her milking star. She freshened this year with triplet bucklings and went to work. She is one of our top milkers even though she does still gets a bit confused about which milking stand is hers.
Sky has now earned her Superior Genetics title.
Sky lost her pregnancy a month early, we think it was from a bad reaction to a vaccination that she got. But even so, she wanted to be a milker. We encouraged her and soon she was milking as much as the other yearlings. It will be interesting to see how she does when she really does freshen!
We were delighted when Sky’s mom, Celeste, kidded with 3 daughters and a son. We were only planning on keeping one of the doelings, but ended up keeping two. And we are thrilled with them both. Sky isn’t as clever or outgoing as her sister, Celia, but she is friendly, elegant, and lovely to look at. We expect both girls to be terrific additions for our herd.
