before you teach them to drink? Can a baby goat be taught to drink from a pail when they are only a few days old like a calf can? I am considering getting some young does from a dairy to breed to meat bucks and after some time have high percentage meat goat herd. The woman I would get them from says to get a Lambar (pail with multiple nipples) to feed with first. I was thinking of only getting 4-6 or so. Is it necessary to get this apparatus or can they reliably learn to drink quite soon? Or is a bottle better, period, and I shouldn't try to get them to drink? Jennifer PS in Edit, I know nothing about goats, these will be a first for me.
