A note about milk records:

While milk production is a largely heritable trait, environment and management account for roughly 65% of the variation between individuals as a whole.  Current statistics show that the heritability of milk and fat yields is 35% ( J Dairy Sci. 2012 May;95(5):2707-17. doi: 10.3168/jds.2011-4714).  While we do strive to breed for goats who produce above average quantity and quality of milk, we also do not manage our goats in an extraordinary way.  Our goats are typically milked twice daily for 4-6 months, then we drop to once daily over winter.  If we have does that we want to carry on an extended lactation, we may increase milking frequency for that doe the following spring.  The current system for national capture of dairy records in goats does not offer the flexibility to code for differences in milking frequency of individuals throughout a single lactation - our does are recorded as being milked twice daily, regardless of the true frequency.  In addition, our milking schedule is adjusted to suit our lives, and we don't milk every 12 hours like clockwork in order to maximize production.  We offer quality hay and fresh water 24/7 and feed Purina Noble Goat Dairy Parlor 16% while on the milk stand.  They also have free access to pasture/browse.  With the addition of free access to a loose vitamin/mineral supplement formulated for goats, that is about the extent of our feeding management.  We believe that stock obtained from us should perform similarly to what we see here if feed quality and management is similar to our own once the stress from the move has waned.  They could perform better if managed for optimum performance, or they could perform worse if managed on a minimalist or grass-based approach.

Our management style may not necessarily show Top Ten levels of production, however we do have does who realistically could compete quite well given optimum management.  That said, I won't be counting any of our girls out for contention of Top Ten recognition with our own management, as I know the genetic merit of their ancestry!
