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.
