Breeding your dairy goats is the first step towards your farm or homestead’s first batch of fresh, healthy, raw goat's milk. But what many beginner goat owners don’t realize is you have to learn how to detect when your goat is in heat before you breed her. With most goats, the window for their standing heat cycle is 12-24 hours, and to the untrained eye, it can be extremely challenging to know when that window of time has happened! In this blog post, I will share with you all the tips and tricks on how to know when your goat is in heat so you can breed your goats successfully.
