I'm new here and have been trying to search the forum for answers to some questions. If I did not post in the right category please feel free to tell me or move my thread id you can.
Here is my situation. I have a small herd of dairy goats and am nearing the end of my kidding season..I have one doe left to go in about four weeks. I am currently milking two does who had their babies about three weeks ago. I am pulling the babies at night to get the morning's milk.
I have made cheese from these particular goats in the past with no real issues.
I have only been milking them on this lactation for a bout a week. I have tried three batches of chevre that did not set and two batches of mozzarella that came out very rubbery. They eat second cut hay and a mix of pelleted and sweet feed with free choice minerals.
I had a doe that I recently sold but before I did I made on batch of mozzarella and it was great! I am at a loss as I used the same techniques for both does' milk in my cheese making but these does' milk seems different. To drink it straight up is wonderful but my cheese is not coming out
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!
