Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.

If this is the entire udder, she may have had an internal infection that has caused scarring inside the udder that is making this very large. Se may not be able to produce milk due to the extensive scarring. It also may be that this infection has caused swelling that will eventually resolve. There is really nothing you can do except to have your vet evaluate her or have her pregnant and then you will see if the udder is competent or not. Since she has not had kids, there is a good chance that, even with scarring, she will be able to produce milk. Now only time will tell.

Does that make sense to you?

Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please REPLY so I can clarify for you.

Sincerely, ***** *****
