Baby goats

JEN has distributed goats to 470 IDP families since late September.

As we noted before, these goats are nanny goats at their three to four months pregnancy. Baby goats have already been born in 50 families out of those distributed.

Today, we will show you baby goats’ photos received from the scene.

A newborn baby goat is so small and light that even a little kid can hold it.

Also, there was a baby goat that had been born at JEN’s storehouse before the distribution.

So far, the probability of twinning has been more than one-fifth.

Pastoral advisors who were chosen from IDPs visit families in charge every week, and check the health condition of mother goats, breed status, and the condition of baby goats when they are born.

It is also one of the important tasks for pastoral advisors to check how much milk is expressed from post-delivery goats.

Currently, each of all 50 post-delivery goats has been producing 3 liter of milk per day as expected.

For IDPs, both mother goats and baby goats are precious property. Our support will be continued until they learn to be able to raise goats properly in the whole community.
