Nanny is kind of an older term for a female goat, kinda like billy is an older term for a buck. Most people just can an adult female goat a doe, and a young female goat a doeling.Thanks! I have a place out of goat reach for feed.
So, if a goat (is it called a nanny?) already gives milk, does she still need to be bred every year?
If she is already in milk, she can stay in milk for a while. Most people milk them 9-12 months, and then dry them off for rebreeding. You can continue to milk her though, without her 'freshening' (being bred and giving birth, to refresh her milk supply). But the milk may eventually start to dwindle, produce less and less, even with multiple milkings a day. It really depends on the goat.
