Goat kidded question about Breedinggreenspun.com : LUSENET : Countryside : One Thread
I have a Nubian that kidded 3 weeks ago and my boar goat keeps trying to breed with her, she is still nursing the kid. I wasn't sure if she could get pregnant again while nursing or not and being this late in the year this has not happened before and my boar and nubian have always been in the same field together. Thanks in advance and God Bless.

I am not certain if she could be in heat this soon, but I do know that Nubians will breed 'out of season', unlike the Swiss breeds. I have a frined who has them and she has kids all year 'round if she wants them.

My guess is yes. Despite what they say about goats being seasonal breeders, my Nubians also will breed anytime. One of my first goats I was told had a dead kid a month or so before I bought her.(Mid summer) Never even occurred to me that she was rebred until the day she dropped twins four months later. She did fine, but I still don't think it's good for them to rebreed so quickly.

They can come into heat as early as that after kidding. i would take precautions as if she is bred soon after she will be stressed.

We will rebreed after 12 weeks, you really need to wait this long for the uterus to have a chance to heal itself. An obviously she needs to be in excellent shape, with a low worm burden. Vicki
