  1. Goat Management
    I have an Alpine buckling that is 9, almost 10 weeks old who i want to eventually use as a driving goat. I am wondering if I should band him now or wait. Im asking because according to what i’ve read wethers are smaller than bucks and im looking for a large goat which he is already showing...
  2. Goat Frenzy
    Hi! I have two questions that I would love some help with: 1. ADGA National Conference. Is there a fee / any sign up required to go as a spectator? I'd just like to go this year since it is fairly close to my home and see all the goats/learn more about showing but I cannot find any...

    Hey goat family! I recently bought a beautiful Nigerian Dwarf buck today. He's AGS registered, I have his sealed pedigree certificate, and I have the signed bill of sale transfer slip from the previous owner to transfer him into my name. I want to transfer registries and go the ADGA route...
  5. Goat Management
    I have a buck and he is the sweetest and adorable little (big) guy I’ve ever met but there is one issue. He absolutely hates doors. I have a small opening in the barn so they can go in there during bad weather and to be milked but it as a door to keep others out while milking or kidding. He...

    Question about introducing goats. We have a Nigerian dwarf (3 years old) - whether, who lost his alpine/saanen buddy in December. We just got him a new friend since he has been alone who is a 7 week old buck (Pygmy, Nubian, lamanche) - we eventually plan on getting more. we have introduced...

    I have a little buck that’s about 5 months old. We had a windy day yesterday, I noticed his eye was puffy and he was squinting today, when I investigated further I found somthing stuck in his eye, it looks like hay. But here’s the thing, when I went to pull it out I found the object was...

    About a week or so ago we noticed a bump on our 6 month old buck's scrotum. Couldn't figure out what it might be so put some NuStock on it over the last week. A couple of days ago we noticed a second, smaller one on the side of the scrotum, and then today what looks like a third one right under...

    Hey everyone, sorry is this is in the wrong place, but I just got my first buck and I’m pretty sure he’s already bred one of my does but I’m not sure. What does a successful breeding look like? On both the female and male parts? They were acting very interested in each other through the fence...
  10. Beginners Goat Raising
    I’m getting my first intact buck today!! I have 6 does with one pregnant and had one wether who passed away. The buck is a 2 year old Nigerian dwarf with blue eyes. Does anyone have any suggestions on pen size/placement away from the does? I have baby does that I don’t want to get...
  11. Goat Frenzy
    As some of you know, I had some difficulties with my wether and knowing if he was actually a wether or not. Well, today I found out! He is 100%, absolutely, positively... a Buck. He has peed in his mouth at least 5 times today, and is chasing around our new buck and flapping his tongue and lips...

    My buck was born on Jan 29. He initially was putting weight on both back legs but at some point shortly later this changed. It wasn’t until maybe day 3 we started noticing he was not walking right. He gets around great. But he doesn’t walk on them still. We treated him with selenium and vitamin...
  13. Introductions
    Hello! I'm new to the production goat arena...I've had a pet pigmy for 8 or nine years but she hasn't really ever needed any intensive management. She's a really sturdy girl and packs with the dogs... Now I have a new herd of kinder and kinder/nubian mix. I am getting milk for the first time...

    Hey everybody! I was just wondering, those of you who rent bucks to breed your does, how much do you get charged? What do you think is a fair price? And let's say that the person is renting the buck to you pays for the feed also for their buck. Thanks!

    Pics for attention lol Bucky is my gorgeous two year old buck. He's a Nigerian Dwarf. He's always trying to be the boss of the barn. I only have two goats, they're my beloved pets. Bucky and Beulah. Who's about to kid any day now with Bucky's offspring. I'm so excited to see how beautiful their...

    I have a 2 year old Nigeria dwarf doe who has been in with a buck since October, and is still not pregnant. This is her first breeding. She was clearly in heat when I put her in with the buck, but hasn't shown any signs since. She's shown very little interest in the buck the whole time, and he...

    My Merlin is giving me a run for my money this year.. I know some weight loss is normal BUT.... He’s getting ribby no matter what I do to the point I’m really getting worried. He’s a one and a half year old Nigerian dwarf. His FAMACHA is a 1-2 and he is being kept in a pen away from the doe area...
  18. Bucks
    My husband brought this goat home, I am not sure if this is normal for a buck. I can't recall noticing this opening before above a buck's 'sack'. He is a one year old Nigerian dwarf buck. See pictures! Kinda up close and personal just worried it's not right. 88025279-22AB-4DBE-B72D-4A471D42C5BD...

    Clear something up for me. I raise boers. I have had people tell me that keeping a buck in the next pen will help does come into heat. Is this true? I understand a buck in rut can help a doe come into heat but I haven't heard anything about keeping a buck in the pen next to the one where the...

    I have a buck who has been fine and sweet in the past when it was time to go on dates and would even leave them be if they weren’t interested, but this year he is very rough with the ladies. The first doe he was with did fine because she was in heat and bred within minutes, however I wanted to...
