I have been looking closley at my breeding plans for this year and for future years. Trying to find scientific proofs to improve my herd. I am suprised at the number of breeders I have spoken with that just kinda guess, on which buck to breed to a certain doe, rather than looking at the heritability of traits. I had a discussion last night with a breeder I have a great deal of respect for, I explained to her that I was attempting to improve the udders on my does. She suggested that if I wanted to improve the mammary system of my goats that the best way to do it is to find a buck who's dam has the udder characteristics I am looking for. She then suggested that the sire affects the udder more than the dam does. As I understood it, a dam with a poor udder can throw kids with very good udders if the udder of the sires mother is excellent. Is this information correct? Thanks in advance!
