There are lots of things to calculate on your goats.
The buck is a 100% X breed
The doe is a 100% Y breed
The kids of this breeding are 50%X and 50% Y
This buck breeds a 100% Z doe.
These kids are 25% X, 25% Y and 50%Z.
You simply reduce the parental percentages by one half to determine the offsprings percentage.
Average daily weight gains are important to know for performance.
Take a 60 day old kid, weigh them, subtract the birth weight and divide the remaining number by 60.
60 Day Weight 25 pounds
minus birth weight 7 pounds
equals 18 pounds
divided by 60 = .30 lbs per day.
# does kidded / # of live kids born = kid crop born.
Then, to find out how your kid crop really is at weaning
# of does bred / # of kids at weaning = TRUE KID CROP
Enough Colostrum for a bottle kid
10% of the kids body weight is the minimum about of colostrum needed.
Newborn weight = 6 lbs. 6 x 16 = 96oz 10% of 96oz is 9.6oz
