Fun Farm Facts Friday October 9th

Have you ever been on a goat farm during breeding season? If so, then you are familiar with the smell of a buck in rut… It’s a unique and distinct smell.

During breeding season the male goats (bucks) go into rut. During this period the buck’s hormones are surging. They tend to act more aggressively and will eat very little if at all. In order to “attract” the does to them they will urinate all over themselves giving them a pungent odor. The girls love it, but let me tell you, it’s quite gross and it can be smelled from quite a distance. Being that it is breeding season here on the farm we are dealing with it right now!
