Plan changed boss. It was either my goats or my plantains. I had to save both. Nevertheless, I'm prepared to embark on building my population without fear of losing my plantation.

Yes ooo... Patra, Michelle, ain't going nowhere. grin.
Truth be told, even their offsprings maintains same; starting off with 2, then 3 onwards from second birth.
On breeding, I initially just let them have their way. Once the does are at least 9 to 11 months of age, I allow them breed no stop. cry. Well, I have been warned and advised against such practices. Currently, I'm working with 3 births in 2years.

I also plan on 3 births biannual but my does are of varying ages, 1year+,1years, 2 seven months olds and a 3 month old who still looks like she's 1 month old. I got a fully mature buck that way he can't breed the smaller girls before they are sexually mature because of size difference. Unless my other buck (the twin of the smallest doe) which is growing normally does the did. I just wish there was a way of getting them all in heat at thesame time (when mature enough) breed them and get this stinky guy off my property�

Re: My Goat Farm Startup (my Diary) by okine4real: 1:50pm On Jan 21
I want to go into goat rearing. I want to buy about 30 females and 5 males. I have two sections of land. One side has one and half plot that is avail now,the other section has about 12 plots. I gave the 12 plots to someone too be farming before. The woman farming said her crops would be due for harvest August this year. So i plan to keep the whole 35 goats on one and half plot for the mean time.

I would to know if the one and half plot would be too small for the goats for the main time.

In terms of feeding, I intend too bebuying cassava pill etc. I have a borehole on the said land. I also have a security post that I tend to hand over too the Aboki that would be taking care of my goats.Pls if there is anything am missing, pls the house should enlighten me.

. Pls the required dosage is half to one mil. Don't give more than that to avoid over dosage. Again ensure you dip or spray the goats and also spray the environment with an effective pesticides. This will reduce the pest load and your goats will be well.
