The first project is the replication of the yellow bucket project. It can be found in the Behavioral Research Forum. This is a fun experiment to see if your goats have a preference for color. I proved the yellow preference in my herd, but I need more herds to duplicate the study to strengthen the evidence.
The second project is a study in Goat Gestation and can be found in the Genetics & Breeding Forum. It's a simple quantitative study that records the length of gestation, breed and freshening number of does (1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc.). Goat gestation is 145 to 155 days with the average being 150 days. The reason for this study is to analyze variations of gestation based on breed and freshening number.
The third project I have added to the forum is in regard to predicting the sex of kids by smelling the poll of the dam prior to freshening. It can also be found in the Genetics & Breeding Forum.
I hope you will check out these three exciting projects. If you have a project you would like to share, feel free to add it to the forum!
