Dee does cycle because she isn't fixed, but with no bucks around to
get her pregnant it's all good. Interestingly there are udder
protectors made of kevlar and spectra for nursing goats. So it would
be possible to use her even if she were nursing. However, I wouldn't.
I will proly never breed her because there are so many good breeders
ut there already it is easier to just buy a good goat. I could get her
fixed to prevent any surprises, but I haven't had to worry about it
But yes, fresh goat milk on the trail would be THE BOMB.
