|A large syringe works great with newborns|
In the late stages of pregnancy and for the first few days after birth the doe produces a yellowish-thick milk called colostrum. It's rich in protein, and nutrients. It also contains essential antibodies. It is best to allow the babies to nurse from the mom for the first 48 hours to get this "liquid gold" but if unavailable from the doe, colostrum may be purchased in a paste form.
When To Wean Goats
Commercial dairy goat operations wean baby goats soon after birth. The reason for doing this is simple; take as much milk from the mom as possibly, as soon as possible and sell the milk for money. The American way! Many years of good results from this commercial practice has led many small-time goat farmers to do the same; wean goats at an early age to get back to harvesting milk.
