Alrighty, this is my first go-round with getting my goats bred and I am clueless. I'm just gonna throw a bunch of questions out there. Jump in and give me your opinion to help me form mine... FWIW, I don't want to keep a buck long term. I'm not well setup for it, and I have little interest in getting setup to keep one unless there is a good business reason. - Should I think about buying a buck or should I breed to someone else's buck? If I buy a young buck, what are my options for him? Can I likely resell him? Or is there a decent way to get him into the freezer (or will he be too bucky)?? - How does biosecurity work when you breed your does to a buck that is not yours? What are the risks? Do you usually send the girls off farm or bring the buck in? I am really leary about sending my does off farm. - What immunizations do my girls need? - I am not opposed to AI, but I don't know how it works for goats. Do you have to have your own semen tank? I do have a friend available who is an expert at AI for cows, and I am sure he could help with the goats (from what I've read, AI for goats is not difficult to learn). Is it a better choice for maintaining biosecurity? What else do I need to know or think about???
