Ok so I have been wanting to bottle raise a kid sinc I got my first goat and then she had Babies and I enjoyed spending hours with them. Then I was looking threw Craigslist, and a dairy breeder on there had Nubian and alpines that were gonna have babies and could be picked up this week as bottle Babies or could wait till April. Now I don't want no negative comments about how it's cruel to take babies away from there moms. Most people do This to keep diease from the babies and some do it to future head bucks so they are extremely friendly. And I never take a kid from the mom if it's the only one it has. So I've read books, but I would like to know from differnt people what are the best ways they found to raise a a baby kid, like feeding schudlues, what the best to feed them(I think I'm going to stay away from milk replacer) and anything else.
