Wisconsin Goat Farm Gets Three Sets of Quadruplets and Triplets in 24 Hours
Michelle Best, a hobby farmer in Saratoga, WI, has lots of kids on her hands. Last week her expectant does birthed three sets of quadruplets and three sets of triplets in less than 24 hours. In her 16 years of raising goats, Best has only had two other sets of quadruplets!
It's not common," said Matt Lippert, agriculture agent at the University of Wisconsin- Extension Wood County who is based in Wisconsin Rapids. "Quads in goats are well above the norm, but not unheard of." Lippert attributed the multiple births to genetics and good nutrition that likely made the goats more fertile.
