Angle of the Rump

The angle of the rump has a great bearing on both udders of does and scrotal attachments on the buck. A buck who has a sloping rump will probably have a loose scrotal attachment, it will look similar to the udder of this doe in the photo. Bucks with loose attachments will produce daughters with the same trait. Loose udders!

  1. I have seen this in my own herd in the past. The conformation of the buck along with his sire & dams qualities plays a HUGE roll in what the kids will turn out to be. Harvey C. would remind me to be careful to select only quality bucks in my breeding program.How true this proved to be!
