Too bad DGP is down But I am impatient so talk to me... At what age/size is a LM buckling ready to breed? Last year we used a LM buckling and he was 9 months old when we bred 4 of our 5 girls to him... the 5th did not settle. The LM's bucklings we got this year were born later in the yr... May & June. So 9 months is Feb-Mar... hmmm no. Would they be ready to breed in Oct/Nov? at 5 months? Or Nov/Dec at 6 months? If I am trying to breed at 5-6 months.. realistically how many does should I try to breed them to? These are my herd sires and I do not want to do anything to affect their growth and future. Right now the 4 month old weighs 60lbs and the 3 month old weighs 51lbs. They are on milk, hay, browse, and alfalfa.... They are growing out beautiful and healthy looking. The 4mo is starting to do a couple *bucky* behaviors. I do also have a ND here I am going to be breeding some girls to... so I have that option. There are a total of 10 does I need to breed this yr... 3 will be FF.
