Some breeders prefer to bottle feed all kids so that they have more human contact and grow up to be friendlier goats. I prefer to dam raise, and we have always ended up with friendly goats. Of course the kids born here get a lot of attention right from birth, especially from the children. I often become the "safety zone" in their games, even when no human kids are playing. Thus they grow up thinking of me as the person to go to when they are fearful or just needing a break. Which means they are generally easier for me to handle in when they are injured or stressed.
