ACAGR National Show Was a Huge Success!
The 2019 ACAGR show at the California State Fair was great event with lots
of breeders from up and down the West Coast. A good time was had by all!
Breeding Season is Here!
It's that time of year again to put the Bucks and Does together for next
Spring's kids! Remember the gestation period for Angora's is about 150
days, plus or minus 5 days. Check your calendar and decide when you want
the kids to arrive then subtract 150 days to get an idea of when to mix the
goats. The does will cycle in about 18 day intervals so being precise is
difficult. Using a marking harness on the Bucks can help narrow that window
down. Usng CIDR's can help too, but are more work. Bucks should have
their pizzle area sheared clean and the Does rear end should be sheared
clean. Keeping a written breeding log to record dates that does are bred
helps plan and make kidding arrangements. After the does are bred, use
caution when worming them as some wormers are not safe to use on bred
does. It is always better to worm does before breeding them. If you are
breeding more than one Buck try to separate the pens they are in by at least
10 feet. Bucks sharing a common fence will destroy it. If the Bucks share a
common fence it should be blocked so the Bucks can't see each other.
Blocking their view of each other can help save your fence from being
destroyed. GOOD LUCK!
