Unfortunately, the does we were going to breed this fall haven’t made weight. They’re both about 15 pounds under. It’s common with some goat breeds to take a year or more to get to breeding weight and Oberhasli is one of those breeds.
We are a little disappointed, but I’d much rather make sure they can survive the pregnancies. Since we do need goat milk, I will be looking into purchasing an already bred Nigerian. No one sells bred Obers without charging a fortune. Not to mention finding a bred Ober in our area would be next to impossible. Nigerians, however, are a saturated breed around here, so I shouldn’t have a problem with finding one.
