    How long do they have to be bred before a pregnancy test will be positive - a blood test? I think it is 30 days for an ultrasound, is that right?

    I think we finally got my nubian Tsu bred to the little pygmy Rio this morning, there was a string of goo out of the right place at least. But this year I'm not assuming anything. I used a straw bale up against the shed wall, we held her in front of it and he didn't need any instruction. It seems to work better than the milking stand, at least for these two. The wall made it easier to hold her still. It is still much easier with two people, but I think one could do it.

    yes - for minature goats - they want 30 days - standards 26 days on a blood pregnancy test. Urine is 50 days.

    Ultrasound is also 30 days

    How much does it cost on average to do an ultrasound?
