I've been reading (yeah, I do to much of that! LOL) and it got me to thinkin'. I don't know much about the little orphan doe I have. She might or might not be full blood Boer. So, now I'm thinking that to get a nice kid from her next year, maybe I should use Artificial insemination from a quality buck. I don't think I want to take her to get bred, as I'm getting a bit "gunshy" after reading about CAE, CL, and all the other stuff she could be exposed to. I want to keep a closed herd as much as possible. I know, I'm thinking way into the future. But I guess it's better to be prepared than leave it till the last minute. Does anyone here use A.I.? I really don't know much about it so I'll be reading lots of web pages, doing my homework over the next few months.
