rut

    One of my bucks, Cullen knocked one of his scurs off this morning. He was left with about an inch of bloody stump on the top of his head. It is not bleeding very much, not even running down his face. I dabbed a little blu- kote on it and put some wonder dust on a little later. Immediately...

    So I am wondering when does the rut for bucks start? I noticed that my boy Cullen has started to act a bit more buckish lately and last night he and Phantom had a wonderful showdown.

    I have a Kiko Male-5 years old-who went into Rut at the end of May. He was with his herd of females, their babies, and 2 other yearling bucks since March. The females all kidded in February, and I was surprised he went into rut. I separated him with the 2 other bucks to the other side of the...

    Purely for fun/speculation. I have had surgery 4x this year. Have had a 1yo intact Alpine/Saanen buck listed for sale, no offers. Decided to toss him in with three 3yo Alpine does(all have bred/kidded successfully last 2 years.) They had not smelled a buck this year. I have no idea their...

    Hello everyone! We have two pygmy goats, a doe and a buck, which we bought via Craigslist. The seller told us at first that she thought the doe would kid in Feb, then said more likely March. In other words, we don't know the breed date. We have quadrant style goat barn, and we were previously...

  8. Beginners Goat Raising
    So our 9 month old cashmere goat boys broke into our girls' pen. We arent sure how long they were in there, but now we're starting to worry that our girls have been impregnated by the 8 charming bucklings that have just entered rut. Is pregnancy possible at this point? We're worried that our...

    I put a few of my does in the breeding pen a few weeks ago, and my bucks haven't gone into rut. Also, I haven't seen my does go into heat (maybe I've just been lazy watching). So, if my bucks do NOT go into rut, is it still possible for my does to get bred...

    Last night we had an electrical storm and the buck pen was down... Yes, this morning we found one of our bucks in the doe barn... Happy as a clam:eek:. Two four month old girls and one two month old girl were among the victims. All of these girls have cycled about two weeks ago. Is there...

    I just moved to an acreage and purchased 2 Nubian 2012 does and 2 Nubian 2012 bucks that I will be using as my foundation herd. I have two bucks that are about the same age at 4 months old and they are kind of just starting to go into their first rut but will not be used for breeding this...
