I bottle feed mine too, but mostly so I know how much the doe is giving and so I know the kids are getting enough. It's also a little more for peace of mind too that the does udder won't end up uneven. I have found too that does are a little more accepting to being milked if they are milked right from the start rather than waiting until the kids are older.

My Boer kids get dam raised, but they also get handled so they are a little friendlier. The one thing I do hate about bottle kids is bottle fed bucks. They always tend to be really obnoxious and a little too friendly. The dam raised bucks seem to understand better that you are human and not a potential girlfriend.
