My dairy does always cycled in Sept. - Feb. Last year and now again this year they seem to be cycling year round. My Boers have always cycled monthly. Are my bucks too close to my does? Is it because I have dairy and boer at the farm? If a buck jumps the fence I could end up with a doe kidding twice in one year and I don't want that!
Any ideas?:confused:

A bit of everything. I have 1 Ob, several LaManchas, 2 Sannens and 2 Alpine. Doesn't seem limited to one breed tho.

I don't know. The only things I can think of is that the buck is close enough that he is bringing them into heat, or they have meat goat somewhere in their lineage and that is causing it. But the meat goat in their lineage does not explain why they cycled seasonally before now. I'm at a loss as to how to explain this for you. :confused: :(
