i had thought to breed with a meat type buck next year to fill my freezer. but someone has recently said that doing so may make for less milk production? does anyone else have this experience? it seems odd, but well, stranger things have happened! if this is the case, i am rethinking breeding meat next year, and since this year is a nub. buck, i may go saanen next year. i'm only trying to breed for family milkers, nothing showing but 4H. i plan to keep saanen and nubian does. now that i've been doing more looking/learning, i dont' think my nub buck is all that much to see--his topline is not very good, and he's got posty back legs. his nose isn't all that roman, and his ears aren't real long either, tho that's my least issue with him. he is polled which may bring on a whole host of new issues. his mother had good production, so the breeder said, but her bag wasnt' the prettiest. good handles tho., nice size which i like since some of my currents have kinda small ones. (my hands are big, so those nice big handles are what i like!) knowing my goals (which really aren't very lofty!) i'd like some advice on what to start looking for for next year. at my rate, it'll take me that long to figure out! or am i going the wrong direction anyhow?
