Polled goats and intersex. Many believed that polled to polled (P/P) breeding causes a high percentage of inter-sexed kids. I believe it has more to do with breeding closely related lines. Communication with several P/P breeders revealed no inter-sexed kids born. All have been raising goats for decades. One for 49 years, another for 40, another for 31 years and others that all have done many P/P breedings. without any intersex problems. Remember this breed was originally hornless!
purchased some land in the foothills of the Cascade mountains outside of Springfield Oregon. The blackberry vines were everywhere and to spray the wines would also kill the trees. Goats were the natural answer. In 2011 we began acquiring goats .
The cheaper the goat the better or so I thought.
History of Oberhasli-Brienzer. The Chamoisee mountain goat is a mountain breed that can do just as well on the plain. Two types were bred.
Oberhasli-Brienzer, which is mainly hornless and the horned variety Bundner.
Breeding Plan. We will acquire polled bucks and semen from polled bucks as the base from which to create a herd of Brienzer type goats.
The semen will be use in a Timed Artificial Insemination (TAI) program with live cover follow up to breed horned (disbudded) American Oberhasli does.
