Dairy goats breed each season. Most does come on season from late summer through to early winter. The doe has an 18-21 estrus cycle. The doe is usually in season from a few hours to a few days. It takes five months for the doe to have kids. Twins are very common and some does have triplets or quads. A good milking doe will milk for a year after kidding, many will milk longer if they are not joined to a buck again.

During the breeding season a buck has a strong musky odour. Does do not have any odour at all. Many small herds do not keep a buck and you will need to find a breeder who is prepared to take your does for service. Most breeders require a vets certificate to state that the doe has tested negative to certain diseases.
Doe kids can be fertile from three months of age so they need to be separated from the buck kids.
