We bottle raise our babies because it keeps all the goats healthier and the babies friendlier. When they are first born, they get 4 bottles a day. As they grow, the number of bottles decreases until they’re weaned. That’s a lot of bottles, so everybody pitches in, even Jade:
It takes a little while for the babies to figure out how to get the nipple in their mouths properly, so we have to help them. Eventually you just point the bottle in their direction and they latch right on.
