This Agriculture Note provides practical information about managing breeding goats on commercial farms. It discusses management practices that affect reproductive performance, fertility and mating during autumn. Where possible, examples of reproductive performance from goats farmed in Victoria are provided. Other Agriculture Notes discuss the grazing requirements for breeding does, and the effects of feeding on growth and meat production.
