Akibat buruk lain ialah memutuskan naluri semulajadi kambing disusukan dengan susu botol untuk bersama kawanan kambing malah lebih teruk mewujudkan kebergantungan secara berlebihan kepada manusia. Kambing akan mejadi lebih manja dan kurang silaturahim pada ibunya. (hehe)

The major portion of a doe's udder is comprised of the cistern areas where milk is stored. The amount of glandular or milk secreting tissue is relatively small and is positioned high in the udder against the body wall. Bacteria, which gain entrance to the gland through the teat opening, multiply and migrate to the
glandular tissue where they cause inflammation. Most mastitis seen in dairy goats is the result of staphylococcal infection spread from the infected glands of other goats by the milking process. Streptococcal and mycoplasma infections, though less frequent, are spread in the same manner. Boils of the gland can also be spread from goat to goat and may be precipitated by butting or bruising of the udder or injuries causing breaks in the skin. Other forms of mastitis are occasionally seen.
Signs of acute mastitis are severe and include swelling, heat, and pain of the affected side with a characteristic change from a normal milk secretion to a watery, yellow, or gargety secretion. The other form, chronic mastitis, may not be easily recognized. A little garget in the first stream of milk, reduced
production on one side, an unbalanced udder, reduced solids on test or a salty flavor all are signs of a low-grade mastitis infection. Suspicions of a chronic mastitis infection can be confirmed by examination of the cell content of the milk, using the California Mastitis Test (CMT), and from a bacterial culture of
a milk sample submitted to the laboratory.
Sanitation at milking time is the single most important step in preventing mastitis. Before milking, the teats and milker's hands should be disinfected in a 25 ppm iodine solution or 200 ppm chlorine solution and dried well with toweling. Teats should be dipped immediately after milking. Leaving one good squirt of milk in each teat also helps reduce mastitis.
