Jersey's Udder

We have a 2 year old Jersey cow. Her udder has some discharge from the teats. (But only when expressed) She has not been breed and so we were wondering if this is normal. I didn't know it this could be happening when she is in heat. I was worried about an infection but the discharge is a more white color. Any info would be greatly appreciated as we are new at this. Thanks!

> Are you POSITIVE she's not bred?

Yes we are positive she is not bred. We have had her since she was a few weeks old and she has not been around any bulls.

Then, I don't know the answer to your question - I'm sorry. I suppose hormones could cause this, but it doesn't seem normal. I've never seen this in my heifers. Is there a large animal veterinarian you can call and ask this question of?

Could be "precocious milking" -- goats will do it, especially if from a line of heavy milkers.

I know one doe that produced milk continuously for 12 years and was never once bred, never dropped a kid.
