Kidding in Thirty Days more Pasture Today

February 01, 2011

The Does should be kidding in about thirty days.  In anticipation of these last thirty days prior to kidding, we stockpiled pasture last fall—basically, twice, we did not turn the animals onto one of the pasture paddocks when it came up in rotation—so the Does would have  more roughage and maybe a little more protein during the final days of pregnancy.  Therefore, today is the day.  We put up a temporary fence on the south end of the pasture, made sure the fence is hot, and turned the goats out.  The pasture may not be pretty, but the goats are happy.
