Rather than snow falling as the kidding season began, we witnessed fine weather and considerable snow melt, also known as mud. That didn't matter to the baby goats as they came into the world--they just loved the spring-like weather. On average, each doe has two kids, and ours are no exception. Over the next couple of weeks we had as many as 80 frisky little ones to feed and care for at one time. Several days ago we had enough milking mothers to begin saving milk in our bulk cooling tank in preparation for cheesemaking. Goatsbeard Cheese will soon be on store shelves!
