2017 is turning into a big year for Amata. She is currently expected to produce 3500+ pounds of milk in her 2017 lactation. She peaked at 17 pounds and has had a steady lactation all summer. With her high production, she has not been out to many shows but still managed to pick up a Reserve Grand Champion win at the 2017 Dutchess County Fair.
Amata was our up and coming first freshener in 2016, easily earning her place on our show string right after she freshened. She came into a beautiful, capacious mammary system even with only had a single kid. At her peak, she was milking over a gallon a day while still maintaining her body condition. She was 15th place 2 year-old at the 2016 ADGA Nationals in one of their largest classes of the show and appraised 87 VVVV, earning Excellent in the feet category and Very Good in the majority of the other categories.
She stands on great feet and her udder is tightly snug to her body and has great height to her rear udder arch. She also has a beautiful medial suspensory ligament. I just love the style of this doe and the way she looks on the move. She already is developing the desired wedge shape to her body, showcasing her body capacity at a young age. A truly all-around great doe, I can not wait to see what another freshening and another year of development will do.
