My Boer Experiences

By

Pennsylvania, United States

Posted Feb 21, 2012

My experience with Boer goats grew as I decided to begin my own breeding program. As I gained more animals and bred the does, I certainly learned more about each one. Breeding, gestation and the kidding process leaves little to the imagination and fills the mind with an enormous amount of useful knowledge. Problems, like ketosis and early kidding, pull at the heart strings, but the times when all the right elements work together result in a beautiful kid and healthy kid and nanny - it makes you proud (and sometimes relieved!).
