In my last post the goats had arrived. Os our Program Manager caught up with the Buck-keepers and here is what he discovered.
Maria is one of our buck-keepers has opted for a semi intensive approach for her goats. She takes them with her when she is working the land and brings them back in when she’s finished. They look extremely healthy and it seems the female may be pregnant… Well done, Maria!!
Lydia is the second buck keeper. She keeps her goats zero grazing, meaning that they do not go out to graze but the grasses and vegetation is brought to them in their penn. The male may need extra feeding but the female is doing great and may be pregnant too!
Jovannis, is our third buck keeper. She has required further training on the care of the buck to ensure that it is healthy.
Caring for the bucks is a big job and we are grateful to Maria, Lydia and Jovannis for the work they have put in this far.
I am excited about the first kids but we will not for sometime when we can expect them
