Hello, it's been a while since I've been on here. Started reading on here for the past week. I have started on a cattle herd and the wife kind of took to the goats. With the cows... if the cow has twins and it is one boy and one girl. The girl is a freemartin and is not fertile. No baby from her. Is it the same with a set of twin goats? Will the twin girl born with her twin brother be able to have babies? Thank ya'll for the responses!

It can happen in goats but it is not common. It is the result of a male and female sharing the same placenta, I think.
