Kidding
by Gary Pfalzbot
About the Author

Kidding is the act of a pregnant doe giving birth. For the most part, kidding time can be a very joyous event but as with just about everything Mother Nature's wonder provides, there can be various difficulties and complications that arise. It is very important for the goat owner to know and recognize any problems that may arise before, during or after kidding. Planning ahead is prevention. Having the correct supplies on hand is a must. And of course, we are not always able to be there at kidding time so it is equally as important to know what to do after kidding. Many factors determine the outcome at kidding time. The nutrition and health of the doe is equally as important - before, during and after kidding. Since the subject of kidding is very wide, we suggest you carefully read each of the fine articles below before your doe(s) are ready to give birth. Again, planning ahead means prevention and ultimately means a greater percentage of healthy kids!
