HARNESSES & CRAYONS
Cross Your Heart Breeding Harness.Breeding Harnesses
Most users need to re-adjust the harness weekly (active bucks lose weight during breeding). Change crayon colors to record which week does were marked.
For use with either the Nylon or Cross Your Heart breeding harness. A metal cotter pin and 2 plastic pins supplied with each crayon. Plastic case protects crayons during transport.
Available in 3 temperature ranges. Temperature range (based on average daily high).
The mark’s scourability is disputed. The Kiwi manufacturer says it is. However, ASI’s tests indicate that this is not always true.
BREEDING HARNESS HOW-TO
Breeding harnesses and crayonsare invaluable tools during the breeding season. They identify which does have been bred and whether or not the bucks are pulling their weight.
We run breeding groups through our handling equipment weekly during the breeding season to check the does that have been bred, record their ear tag number and the date. Five months down the road we sort by ear tag and date and get the nannies into ourkidding jugs. We wouldn't be able to do this w/o the aid of a marking harness.

Our Boer billy modeling a Ram Bell and collar. The bell's tone lets us know the location of our goat herd in the pasture. For ear tags, check out our Q-flex® line of scrapie approved tags.It says Ram Bell but it works for bucks too!
It's a heavy-duty bell for use on rams or bucks. Can be laser imprinted with the buck's name or your name/address in case he decides to go for a walkabout.
Best used for holding buck (ram) bells. Made of a tough nylon that can handle the most ornery of goats. 26" long. Fits around the necks of most does. Measure the neck of the goat before ordering the collar. We are sourcing a larger collar.
