Thanks to those interested goat breeders, we are now fully booked for the two courses 9/10 Feb, presented by Peter Lynch for breeders to learn how to inseminate their own goats. Breeders are coming from as far away as New Zealand, and NSW. While they will be intensive learning days including lots of practise at inseminating does, I am sure we will do a lot of talking about goats, and we will have fun along the way. Looking forward to seeing everyone.
