How late in the year can you breed a Boer doe ?
I have bred my does in December and January. I had good luck with both of them, although the end of June can be very hot around here. How are you selling your kids? Pets or something else. I can't speak for the pets side because no one around here wants pet goats, but meat goats sell anytime of year. Prices vary according to the time of year, but I do ok. As far as flies are concerned, I didn't have any more fly problems than I normally do, but I can't guarantee that you will have the same experience. Personally, I would stay away from kidding in July and August - it's just too hot and the babies can't handle the heat for the first few days.What are your experiences in breeding later in the winter like december/january ? Are the flies just horrible when they first have babies, (that what every on says around here to have babies in the spring)... and do they sale in the summer ? Most kids around here are ready in march
