Ok, ok, I know that some of you may be getting tired of talking about milking and dairy animals. I promise, we’ll get back to our regularly scheduled programming soon. BUT, since we just started up our goat milking again for the year I seriously have raw milk on the brain! So, bear with me just a little while longer. 😉
Today, I’m excited to share a free printable milk record sheet that hopefully will help to organize things around your homestead dairy.
Last year I kept no records of any of our food production, milk or otherwise. I really wish I had, even just for fun’s sake. I think it would be interesting to look back in 10 years and see what our yields were.
But, since this is really only our 2nd year of food production, I’m really not too far behind.
I especially wanted to keep a start to finish account of how much milk we brought in this year. People frequently ask me how much milk I’m getting, especially when I’m selling goat babies. Also, keeping a daily tally of your milk yields can help you to monitor the health and condition of your goats, and let you know if you are feeding them appropriately.
It is designed on a monthly basis, and if you will need to print a separate sheet for each animal you are milking.
To print off this free record, you will need Adobe reader installed on your computer. Open the following file, then save it to your computer and print as many copies as you like.

Let me know if you decide to use it and what you think!
