No, the hormones needed to produce milk are not produced until after the goat has given birth.

Is it easy to milk a goat?

It depends on the personality of a goat, if they allow you to freely touch their udders it is very easy. After the goat is used to being hand milked it will become a routine for the animal and much easier for you. Most goats are milked on a stand, they are usually tied or eat grain while it is milked. Some farmers will hold the right leg of the animal while they milk it if the animal kicks. The teats are smaller than cattle teats are, however, they milk fairly easily if the animal is cooperative.
