    I was just thinking this morning - why don't they develop a home goat pregnancy test strip like they do for people? How difficult could it be?

    I know, goats are relatively unimportant in the greater scheme of life, but they could develop ones for all animals - I was thinking for cows it would be great b/c it probably costs the farmer alot if the cow doesn't take.

    I'd buy them.

    I don't know why they wouldn't make them :shrug:

    Here is link to the OK State University meat goat manual. If you click on the link for chapter 7 it explains briefly why they don't have a preg kit. Langston's manual also explains it but that manual is not available on line.

    Is this the part you are talking about?

    If so, it doesn't say WHY, as though there is a reason, it just says they don't have widespread use. I like to know the why behind things (to the despair of my teachers sometimes) lol
