What makes it Fall on the farm?

brigittabarnear

It is Fall in case you did not know. You ask what clued me in besides the weather? The cows are looking for a mate and the goats are in rut. While cows are able to breed every 21 days, goats only come into rut in the Fall. It is funny to watch the mating rituals of goats. It is something we see on the farm every Fall. This year is different as we now have cows on the farm. We had hopes to have the cows artificially inseminated, however this has been more difficult than previous thought. Hopefully within the next week we will be bringing a bull to the farm.

Here is another trivia about our animals. Did you know goats gestation time is 5 months. We expect to have kids in January as most of them are already bread. It seems Fall started late July this year with the cool temperatures. Cows on the other hand have a longer gestation period of nine months. Hopefully next Spring we will have more kids.
