    My Nubians do, but I live in the South, and they have a buck in the next pen year round. I had friends in Colorado who had Nubians, and theirs only cycled seasonally.

    Boers will breed year round, last year in the hottest part of July my Saanen was bred by a boer buck, she delivered twin does 5 months later.

    Nigerians,Boers,Kikos,Spanish Meat,Fainting goats,Kinders, and Pygmies, breed year round. Nubians are usually seasonal breeders sometimes may breed year round.

    Good Luck. :)

    When I had alpines, I bred them year round.

    My sanaans seem to be seasonable and so are my Toggs. lol I need to get something for year round breeding. My favorite part of keeping goats is having little ones.

    Some breeds are more seasonal than others, but certain individuals in every breed will cycle year round. Just depends on the goat. Most of mine only cycle through the fall and early winter. I do not run a buck with the herd though, either.
