    These sisters are ready for breeding this fall. Born 3/19/2020. We would like to see them stay together. They were bottle babies and handled very often. Their dam gives 10# milk per day at peak. They are not registered but both dam and sire are. Disbudded, current on vaccinations and very...
  2. Pack and Working Goats
    Hello, does anyone have experience with kiko/alpine crosses for packing? The hardiness, easy birthing, easy to keep feet, and parasite resistance of the kiko crossed with a large athletic alpine sounds good on paper to me. Wondering if anyone can back this idea up or discard it?

    Hi everyone, One of my goats (18wk alpine) has developed a cough and nasal discharge. It started during the intense smoke we had last week (wildfires in Oregon), but it hasn't gone away and actually seems to be getting worse. He is eating and drinking normally and has no fever. The nasal...

    Hello, I would like to breed my 2 year old Alpine doe with a Nigerian Dwarf buck. I was just wondering if that would require artificial insemination or not. If so, would that mean a vet would have to do it? I have never bred my goats before, so anything helps. Thanks.

    Hi, My 11wk ober/alpine cross has developed a swollen lump (I think it's a lymph node) under his jaw on one side. I noticed it yesterday. It doesn't seem to be getting better or worse, and it doesn't seem to bother him. You can't see it when you look at him but you can definitely feel it. He...
  6. Goat Conformation
    Hi, I have a 3wk5d old alpine buckling who weighs 18.9 pounds and is 17.5" at the withers. I'm not concerned about growth rate, because that seems fine (.51lb ADG over the past 2 weeks), but I am concerned that this little guy might be stunted because he was a twin and his brother was...

    Hi, My 10wk old alpine bucks are both having issues with their horns. I got them when they were 8wks, both had slightly flaky horns when I picked them up but I figured it was normal/a sign of having been sick (both had sore mouth at 4 weeks old, were clear for over a week before I picked them...

    Being still pretty new to goatkeeping, I am trying to decide which direction to go breed-wise for my herd. I have a registered Mini Nubian doe and her two registerable doelings, and they are adorable and friendly and I love them. I also have a mostly Alpine grade doe we got as a bottle baby (she...

    Hello, new to goats but experienced with poultry and horses! I lovingly own two Boer/Alpine cross doelings who are just bursting with personality. They are from a set of triplets but hilariously look nothing alike! Luna is small, brown in body with a white face and upright Alpine ears. Her...

    Hello all, I am a new goat owner and have run into a serious issue very early on in my goat-raising journey. I have two Boer/Alpine cross doelings that are 1 month + 24 days old. They were a set of triplets but I only bought the two doelings. The smaller sister, Luna, is very healthy and...

    Hi! I am new on here, at least new as a member, have been reading posts for awhile. I need some assistance in tattooing ADGA kids. I get the general 'gist' and have read the ADGA link on tattooing but it still doesn't make sense to me. For whatever reason, lol. So I was assigned a three...

    So, we are thinking of purchasing our first Nigerian Dwarf goat. We currently have one 6 yr. old Alpine and a 16 mo. old heifer. Could the cow hurt the nigerian because she is smaller? and any tips on introducing a smaller goat to a larger goat?

    So confused, please tell me if this is normal for an alpine wether, 1 year old. Look at his picture from when we got him last October. Now we shaved him for an upcoming 4-H fun show... those spots?!? We are so shocked and confused if this is normal.
  18. Waiting Room
    Hello, I am new here. I have 2 goats. Male & female. My husband fixed our male goat. However, we are new to raising goats and I'm almost positive he left a testicle behind. Reason being, our female appears to be pregnant. She has never kidded before, she has developed udders. I am able to...
  19. Goat Frenzy
    Hello. I have had some "oops" breedings that were not planned in the past. But, my question is, to those who experimental breed purposely(LOL) do you prefer does of other breeds or bucks? I know it all depends on what I am wanting out of the cross. I raise LaManchas and have been seeing a few...
