The goats produce milk at a rate of 21.7 litres per day.

 

21.7 liters per day * 280 days  =  6,076 liters   total

 

And...     6,076 liters / 0.5 liters per bottle  =  12,152 bottles

 

This makes sense, because if each bottle holds 1 liter, and she has a total of 6,076 liters, then it will take 6,076 bottles. But since each bottle holds half a liter, it will take two times as many bottles.
