Me too, of course I only get to see structure upfront. It will be a long wait for the udders.
So what do you have?
Often the milk is better than the award! AND she should get an award for those quads!!Awards, but she produces a lot of really good milk.
she does deserve an award for the quad especially when you consider that she has never had more than twins and was 6 this year. She's a great doe. She's milking over a gallon a day started that at four days fresh She rocks!Often the milk is better than the award! AND she should get an award for those quads!!
I love Nubians. Years back raised fullblood Boer and used many Nubians for both cross breeding and registered embryo implants for Boers. Way back when Boer were "new"
Now I keep Saanen, Nubian & crosses. Bucks are both fullblood. It is my intent to add a few Boer to the farm, since I decided I like the meat. Lot smaller than a cow.
Sorry you lost your beautiful doeling. It's so tough to accept. I know.
yes in the last 3 or she had triplet quad quad and then this single h but last year she had three bucklings and a doeling and you're right the bucklings pay the feed bill since you can sell them off. But if I had to get a single at least it's not another single buckling. It also eliminates the need for me to decide what to do. I paid good money to have fancy buck, and I don't know what he's producing yet nor do I need the competition at this point.Well, yes -- AT LEAST a doeling!! And lovely, at that.
I had 2 mini Nubians a while back. Bought as mom & daughter on side. Mom had trips next time -- and everytime after. Dtr had trips from get go --3 yrs straight and always 3 bucklings!! The mom normally had bucklings, also -- but, one year slipped a doeling in the mix. I almost ripped her tail off, checking & re checking. I still have her and at 2 she will be a FF soon. Hope not boys. Looks like twins in there. The boys helped pay the feed bill from sales
