    After 4 to 6 weeks of parturition, the milk production of Alpine goats peaks. This is because parturition, or the act of giving birth, stimulates the production of milk in goats. After giving birth, the goat's body goes through hormonal changes that increase milk production. The peak in milk production typically occurs around 4 to 6 weeks after parturition, as the goat's body adjusts to the demands of nursing the newborn kids.
