MILK NECK: Examples of Milkneck in Goats and Sheep

Milk Neck is a soft swelling located on the chin/throat, right where the chin and throat meet.
It occurs in kids a nd lambs who's mothers are heavy milkers. The size of the swelling varies greatly, from barely noticeable,
to quire large. It is soft. It is not a hard lump. Milk Neck is OK and not something you really need to worry about.
