New Baby Kids in 2013

It is January 10th and our 500 momma goats are just starting to freshen in with new baby kids. Each momma can have 1 to 3 and sometimes 4  babies at one time. We keep the female nanny goats but we give away for free our male buck goats. The nanny baby goats will be in the nursery for the first 6 to 8 weeks after they are born. Their first 3 feedings of colostrum milk are the most important feedings without this type of milk they may not live. They are then placed on a laktec machine where they can go up to eat when ever they are hunger.
Kidding time is so much fun with all the babies running around. It is a great time to visit the farm and experience first hand so many babies in our nursery.
Let the fun begin.
