I started the polled goat project because I would like to gather field data to answer the question: "Is breeding polled to polled the cause of polled hermaphrodites, or is polled hermaphrodite-ism actually due to inbreeding?" I have always read that you should never breed two polled goats together because you will get hermaphrodites. While on the other hand, some breeders say breeding polled to polled causes no issues and all kids are normal.
The goal of this project is to provide clear and easy to access data regarding the truth on polled to polled breeding. I am gathering different polled to polled breedings and compiling them here. Hopefully this project will shine light on the questions: ".Is it the polled gene itself, or is it breeding goats that are too closely related?"
