    New Goat Mama Here

    First time goat owner here! (Excuse my lack of goat :D). I have 2 unregistered pure bred Nigerian dwarf goats, one buck and one (soon to be) wether. I originally purchased them as pets but I’m wanting to expand our herd for milk production in the coming year! I have a couple questions for you...

    Choosing Who to Retain

    As most of y’all know, I’m having to decide which of my Nigerians to part with. I’m trying to set emotional attachments aside. I’ll give what pros and cons I have with each. It’ll take me some time to get pics of each. I’m going to post the dam and sire of the ones that we’ve raised. I ask...

    breeding question

    I have two does and one buck. Could I breed a buck from one of the does to a doe from the other doe. They would both have the same father but different mother's.

    Latestarter's 2019 kidding

    April just got "had" by RJ so right now it looks like first kidding will be on/about March 13th. I had all the girls, adults and yearlings with the buck and wethers up till September 5th. I had hoped to separate my buck RJ before he went into rut or any of the girls went into heat. I saw him...

    When can I put doelings with buck?

    My doe had twin girls 5 weeks ago. As soon as she started to kid I put her in the barn and she has been separated ever since. The buck is not the baby daddy and we eventually want to breed the 2 doelings with him but I obviously don’t want him mounting them quite yet as they are very small. When...

    Hello from Texas!

    Hello! My name is Ashley and I am a high school student from Dallas County. This year, I will be showing a Boer doe (breeding) at many major shows across Texas as part of the FFA. The problem... I’ve never shown goats. I’ve never even owned a goat! I know nothing except for bits and pieces! I do...

    This theoretical at this point. Diamond is due any time and is quite the producer. Since our main goal is milk production right now (without sacrificing udders and overall confirmation to stand the test of time) we are considering keeping a buckling. She's bred to a buck named, Tuck, and his...

    Using CIDRS without PG600

    I'm interested in using CIDRs without using PG600 or any other injectable after pulling them, the doe will be put in with the buck after pulling CIDRs, has anyone done this before? I will also be flushing the doe before breeding her.

    Nigerian dwarf doe accidentally bred by Nubian buck.

    Hey all! I have a Nigerian dwarf doe that I got from my neighbor right before we moved away. They purchased a variety of goats from the auction all at once, including 2 full size bucks, all were pastured together. Momma had a little doe nursing, and I watched daily as a determined buck chased...
