Fat Update

There was a mistake on the previous reporting of Blue Umbrella's milk test. Actually, there were two mistakes. The first mistake was that Blue had 7% protein and that that was the highest in the herd. The farmer was in a rush and didn't read the report correctly. The highest butterfat was Xie Xie the yearling milker who had 7.6% compared to Blue. Only that was also a mistake, so there were three mistakes, because Blue did not have 7% butterfat, she had 7% protein. Blue had 13.77% butterfat.

That is correct, 13.77%. Nice try, Xie Xie.

I was looking back to see, if you were looking back to see, if I was looking back to see, if you were looking back at me.

That's a Jackson Browne song, right Marigold?

Just the two of you, the two of you... are very, very clever. What an amazing amount of butterfat! Do you know the highest % of butterfat ever recorded for a goat? Certainly, Blue must be close to setting a record.

Dear goatfarmer,
I have no idea. It is something the goatgrandmother used to sing to the goatmother when she was a 'kid'. :)
