The reproductive cycle of goats is similar to sheep but there are sufficient differences for goats to require different reproductive management.
The recommendations for goats are:
No need to use teasers.
A joining period of five weeks is enough.
Generally, for April joining, 1.5 per cent bucks is sufficient.
Mate maidens separate from adult does.
Do not stress pregnant does, they abort more easily than do sheep.
Control predators before kidding begins.
Supplementary feeding during pregnancy has not increased kid birthweights or survival.
Kids should be weaned at three months of age and the sexes separated.
Normally goats start their cycle between February and March and it lasts to June or July. However, it is possible to induce cycling by introducing bucks. The response of the doe to the buck is sudden, ovulation occurs within two to ten days after the buck has been introduced.
This handy calendar can help you with predicting birth rates,
