i have female goats. how can i know that the particular female goat is pregnant? is there any special instrument?


MEG: ULTRASOUND IS ROUTINELY USED TO PREGNANCY TEST SHEEP AND GOATS. ALSO THE FACT SHE IS NOT COMING INTO HEAT ANY MORE IS A GOOD CLUE.

Pregnant Does
by: Anonymous

Your Doe should come into "season" each spring and fall. They kid in five months. The doe will bag up (udder) a few days before she is ready to kid.
If she was bred in the spring she will not "flag" (show signs of being in season) in the fall if she is pregnant. If she did not get bred then she will go through her regular "in season" cycle and behavior.
I have not heard of any special tests to check this although there could be such a thing.
Hope this helps.
