Well, I'm one that believes there is a connection with moon phases and animals and us.......but I have also found that local weather can be a bigger influence on "animal" actions or reactions.
I wean when it's time to wean....dehorn when it's time to dehorn....plant when the ground has enough moisture in it, and the ground is warm enough. Breed doe's when they are in heat.
As there is a "harmony" thing at work on earth, I find it lacking to be just following any one thing that is a small part of it.
I think you will find that moon phases play a bigger role with animals that are out in the wild, and a lesser role with animals who are kept in captivity.
