    Hey everyone! It's been awhile since I was actively participating on here. My baby, Emma, a 2 y/o pygmy purebreed, was bred w a purebred pygmy buck I keep on location. They're both small, so I wasn't expecting there to be much of an issue. She is a first freshener and so I was excited but...

    Hey all! So as you may or may not know, I’m new to goats. Just got them this year. Unfortunately for me I bought 6 before I really knew what potential they had for my future, and now really want to get into showing, appraisals, milk testing, and generally just bettering the breed. (Nigerian...

    I am looking into testing my 3 does and I have a few questions. 1: Is Johnes accurate? Should I even bother with having it done? One lab says that it is recommended that your goat is 18 months old, so I guess I can’t do Racheal. 2: What labs are the best and reasonably priced? 3: Is it risky...
