We had a rough 2018 with abortions, weak kids, trouble conceiving, reduced milk production. We live in a small town in the Andes and don't have access to labs or vets that know anything about goats so it's been trial and error. Eventually we had several newborns that wouldn't stand or suckle and figured out it was a selenium deficiency (despite always providing loose minerals). We started doing BoSe shots (oral isn't available here) and switched to a brand of minerals with more selenium. Our whole herd is looking better (skin, hair, condition). Five of our girls are now 2-3 years old and late last year we bred them for the first time. None of them conceived. Last month they went into heat again and all five of them developed little udders the day they went into heat. We bred them all for the second time and 4 of the 5 still have little udders. Is this a good sign? We've kept goats for 6 years but not many first fresheners.
