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 does are located. Don't most goats (boers included) come into heat on their own, even if a buck isn't around? I keep a buck around all year (in the next pen, sometimes) and my does only come into heat in autumn. I feel as if the 'next pen' might be stretching the truth of a buck in rut helping them come into heat.
