Nigerian Dwarf Dairy Goats

for people who love the littlest dairy goats

Hi! We are new to the goat process and we have a question. We have two adult doe's milking and two baby doe's. The babies are one month old. When they reach two months and are separated from the mom--Are the babies permanently kept from the adults, so that they will not nurse on either of the two doe's? If they are left with the herd, what would keep them from nursing them?

Thanks so much,

Tammy, I just answered this very question in response to Susan's post in the kidding section of the forum. If you talk to 10 people, they'll probably give you 10 different answers on this! I explained in that post what we do here and why.
