Is your goat pregnant? Would you like to be able to feel for fetal movement to help confirm goat pregnancy?
Feeling for fetal movement is not only a great way to be sure that your doe is indeed pregnant, but a great way to know that the babies are doing well.
However, if you don’t know exactly where to feel, it can be hard to know if what you are feeling is actually babies, or just your goat’s rumen. After all, the rumen can make all kinds of gurgling, bumping movements as well. This can feel exactly like the kicks and flutterings of a baby goat.
But if you know where to feel, you can be sure that the movements you are feeling are babies! Feeling baby goats moving around inside their mother’s stomach is such an amazing experience!
Watch this video to learn how to determine if the movements you are feeling inside your doe are baby, or rumen movements!
