I have heard lots of conflicting opinions about when the best time is to breed young does, and thought I would get some of your opinions. I have three does this year, two are adults and have been bred before. The other is a nubian/boer doeling, about 6 months old. We are planning to breed the two older does in December so that they Kid at the end of May. As for the younger one, I have heard that milk production is better over the long-term if you breed the first year instead of waiting until they are yearlings. Is this true? Do most of you breed does their first year, or wait until the second year? I've heard 70 pounds is the minimum weight to breed, but I've also heard from a local commercial goat dairy that 45-55 pounds is fine for breeding young does. Also considering that she is half boer and won't get as tall as my nubian or my nubian/alpine. Any thoughts?
