    I have always put my Nubian & LaMancha ladies with their respective bucks starting August 1st and they always delivered in mid January. This year I purchased a couple older nannies that are dry and I'm wondering what the chances are that they would breed before August 1st if I put them in with their bucks now.
    Anyone have experiences with their does breeding before fall?
    Thanks,
    Debi

    Yes it can and does happen. I've had breedings as early as June.
