Is there a way to trick or force a doe to take? The buck keeps trying and using his energy bu she isn't lifting. I need them to breed soon so the babies are old enough for my county fair. :need-comments:

Have you tried table breeding? Look it up on YouTube, it might be just what you need. Basic idea is that you lift her for him. ;)

Make sure you are checking your does color before breeding. Look at her vulva and it should be dark red to purple and swollen before she will lift. Sunshine is really good for stimulating a doe to come in, as well as a really good diet and weight. I love a teaspoon of calf manna every other day for stubborn breeders.
