We often advertise that we are an ADGA Plus* herd, or that we participate in “performance programs.” Those that have been breeding registered dairy goats for a bit will know what that means, but if you’re new to dairy goats, you may wonder why we think these programs are important. Our opinions are just that—opinions, and only our own—but we do feel the performance programs are valuable assets to our breeding program, and we’d like to explain why.
It’s early January; our first doe due to kid for 2020 is just a little less than two months from her due date, so I’m starting to take inventory of the supplies in our kidding kit, see what is missing or needs to be thrown out and replaced, and make a list of what we need to order. I started making a master list of everything I like to have on hand, and I figured it might be a good idea to share it on the website, too.
