I have noticed that in any of the does I'd had none of them have ever had very strong heat signs. I have never seen one of my does in heat, even going out daily, multiple times a day, and spending a lot of time watching them. Yet have had multiple kids born out of does who I had begun to think didn't cycle(thank you pasture breeding)

Is there anything that could be causing weak/nonexistent heat signs? Anyway to make them more obvious? Or is it just my luck?

Hopefully you will see your Alpine in heat in the fall months. When I had my Alpine/Nubian doe, she never went into heat before September. Usually was October when I saw heats.

My Boer doe has silent heats as well. Be very, very careful with these types, because they do not know that they are in heat either and will NOT stand for the buck!!! :hammer:

But since yours do get bred, there should be nothing to be worried about.

One is almost 2, one is almost 3, and then I had the yearling, and the doelings, all LaMancha. But this has been for the past year and a half.

Even when I had my Boer does. (4 and 6 years)
I have never seen any of my goats in heat.
No matter what time of the year.
