Nigerian Dwarf Dairy Goats

for people who love the littlest dairy goats

I was checking out this site because I have two "forever pregnant" girls and I had them tested to make sure they were pregnant and there weren't any problems.   I found this interesting article on False Pregnancy in Goats.  It's copyright protected so I can't actually post the article itself on this blog.  However, since Biotracking is a large company, I'm sure they secured the copyright before putting it on their website...if you go there you can read's the link..just click on the article to bring it up

I had this happen - she even went into a very short labor right about her due date.    But I was able to successfully breed her a few months later and she has kidded twice since the false pregnancy.

I moved it over to the BREEDING section of the forum so it will be easier to find.

This is a great article! I've never had this happen, but I know a couple people who have, and it sounds so weird. Can you post it in the forum? It will be easier for people to find if it's posted there. Thanks for sharing!
