Hey, Just thinking ahead to this Fall when I (hopefully) get to breed my doeling. I have a a couple options. Around here most of the herds are closed. They will sell semen, but won't let you bring your doe there. So option number 1 is AI. I feel that this is probably pretty difficult, hubby thinks its doable. does anyone have any experience in this field? If we went this way we would most likely go with this guy (as long as they had some for sale at the time we needed it) I would like your opinion on him. I don't know anything about conformation, his coloring to me is a little plain, but his body looks good to me. What do you think of him? Second one down Copper Hill Milk Man. http://www.goddardfarm.com/semen_sales His Pedigree http://www.adgagenetics.org/GoatDetail. ... N000900752 I chose him because his semen is actually affordable lol! I personally like the SpinATop Buck they have, but I can't afford the $200 a straw! I like this option because it means I can breed her to a registered Nubian and we could have registered kids. Another option is a friend of mine has Alpine does and is (hopefully) getting a buckling this year. She says I can use him anytime. I am inclined to this, because it would be so easy, let the goats do the work! LOL! But they would not be FB Nubians. However, I don't see a problem with mixed goats for home perposes, I'm just not sure I could sell babies as well??? I don't want my own buck right now, so for right now its not an option. Several breeders told me that they would sell me unwanted bucklings for $50, then I could use them, then sell, but I don't want a ton of boys coming and going either! I get too attatched!
