The Business of Getting a Goat Bred

And so it goes. . .

Text from Farmer Friend. . .

"Doe in Heat! Need you Now!"

My response?

"HEADED out, Must milk my Goats first. Be there ASAP."

Grab the Semen tank and AI kit. . .Check, Check

To drive one hour to do this:

(Note, the right arm is holding the outside of the speculum still, 
and the left hand is using the AI gun) 

To then proceed directly from there to Christmas Shop
in the same outfit, no muss, no fuss. . .



Be thou diligent to know the state of thy flocks, and look well to thy herds. For riches are not for ever: and doth the crown endure to every generation? The hay appeareth, and the tender grass sheweth itself, and herbs of the mountains are gathered. The lambs are for thy clothing, and the goats are the price of the field. And thou shalt have goats' milk enough for thy food, for the food of thy household, and for the maintenance for thy maidens

- Proverbs 27:23-27

"I know of no pursuit in which more real and important services can be rendered to any country than by improving its agriculture, its breed of useful animals, and other branches of a husbandman's cares."
