When To Breed Goats

When Are Goats in Heat?

How can I tell if my doe is in heat? If you have a buck around, it will be very apparent, with the wagging of her tail and wanted to get close to the buck. But what do you do if you you do not have a buck and you want to get the doe breed at the time she is in heat?

1. Get a rag, preferably a Henry Milker Udder Towel.
2. Find a Buck
3. Rub the rag on the bucks head behind the horn area where musk glands are located.
4. Bring the musk rag to the doe once each day.
5. If you get a reaction from the doe, she is probably in heat and ready to breed.
6. Keep the musk rag in a sealed jar.
