    Do nubians come in heat all year round or just certain times of the year?

    I think they cycle year round but the heats are stronger in the fall and winter.

    Actually I think Nubians are usually August-January and that's it.

    They can cycle as early as August and as late as February or March. The normal range is September -January though.

    Out of the standard dairy breeds Nubians can cycle the longest.
