Fun Farm Fact Friday… March 6th

We are now officially in Kidding Season! So it seemed fitting to have the facts over the next few weeks be kid and pregnancy related. Today’s fact is about goat gestation:

Goats have a gestation period (length of pregnancy) of 5 months. For standard breeds (like ours) it totals about 150 days and for the miniature breeds it’s slightly shorter at 145 days. While goats might “show” a little in the later months of pregnancy they don’t really start looking pregnant until their last month of pregnancy.
