BB VERY EASILY kidded quads, 1 buckling got stuck in his sack before I could get to him. 3 GORGEOUS lovely doe kids are alive & healthy. All four kids were nice and big, equally sized. She has plenty of milk, no issues at all, got some colostrum/milk 24hrs after kidding to put in the freezer. BB is EXTREMELY attentive & an EXCELLENT mother keeping the kids close and spotless clean at all times.
Purchased new Kidding Camera/Barn Monitoring system: Reolink PoE 4MP HD Indoor/Outdoor Surveillance Camera, Night Vision/Audion/Remote Access/Motion Detection.

PoE cabling 150ft to milkroom plus multiple 5-7ft sections for connections between Switch & Camera's. About $35 for all the cabling Purchased NetGear 5-Port Gigabit Ethernet Switch (GS305P), installed in the milk, via 150ft CAT6 cable from home to barn. $59.99 SUPER EASY SETUP!!! Just plugged in the CAT6 from my router to the NetGear switch, from the NetGear Switch to the ReoLink Camera, downloaded the Reolink App on my iphone and setup an account. Poof everything works GREAT!! Plus it has some seriously awesome night vision! I forgot to turn on the lights the first night, but when I checked the camera feed it was great! No additional like was necessary! Pic is nice and clear and I can tell every animal even in the pitch black! * NOTE: REMOVE THE MOTION DETECTION because it seriously screeches out alarms like crazy and send notices!! Ugh! For some reason I do have to unclick the audio Mute every time I check it on my phone. Not sure why??
