FACT: OUR GOATS ARE EXTREMELY LONG-LIVED. THANKS TO THEIR NATURAL LONGEVITY, BUT ALSO DUE TO THE METHOD OF EXTENSIVE GRAZING THEY ARE RAISED WITH: NO FORCED PRODUCTION AND NO STRESS FROM INTENSIVE BREEDING
The adult female cashmere goat (doe) has either a long or short coat; horns, weighs between 50-100 pounds, height between 2-2,5 feet. They can be bred safely by 15 months, normally give birth once a year and have a gestation period of 5 months. Capable mothers, with strong maternal instinct, they need little assistance at birth, they take care of their offspring immediately and can raise up to three kids at a time. The udder is small and high - perfectably suitable for their extensive/semi extensive range life, where a dairy goat's udder would be damaged. Mastitis is rare (< 1%) and our kids remain with their mothers until they are weaned naturally by her (2,5-3 months of age).
