I’ve been reading up on goat genetics lately, trying to get a handle on what kind of things to expect when breeding. I’ve learned that not a lot is known about goat genetics yet. So, I thought I’d ask for any information members may have on the subject. Specifically, I’m interested in goat size. Obviously breeding larger framed goats will lead to larger framed kids, but I’ve noticed some unexpected results from time to time (actually pretty regularly.) For example: a borrowed full blood boer billy bred this puny (pet) nannie we have and she had a pair of really nice, thick kids. Then for the second year in a row this hoss of a nannie we have has had thin kids from the same billy. Also, some puny looking kids grow into nice goats and vice versa. These are just a few examples we’ve noticed. Long story short, I’m struggling to get some consistency. I’m not interested in growing the biggest goats, I’d just like to get a consistently more square-framed goat.
