To get female goats, does, pregnant.
The weight of a British Alpine goat is usually around 125 pounds. However, it depends on the gender of the goat and if the goat is overweight or pregnant.
As soon as she next cycles but is recommended that you only breed a goat once a year.

By hand or with a milking machine.
Twice a day.
She has to have kidded so at least two years old.
Yup. They sure do. My friend had a goat dairy, and she milked 300/day.
It depends on the personality of a goat, if they allow you to freely touch their udders it is very easy. After the goat is used to being hand milked it will become a routine for the animal and much easier for you. Most goats are milked on a stand, they are usually tied or eat grain while it is milked. Some farmers will hold the right leg of the animal while they milk it if the animal kicks. The teats are smaller than cattle teats are, however, they milk fairly easily if the animal is cooperative.
Yes. It is safe to eat the goat meat when pregnant.
If the male goat is the father of the kids, then probably. Sometimes a male goat that is not the father of the kids will protect, but not always. In my advice, do not put the pregnant goat near any males but the father.
After a goat gives birth milk is usually present in their udder to nourish the baby directly via. the baby nursing, or milked by humans for whatever purpose.
Pregnant women can, in fact, eat goat meat. Generally, though, pregnant women should check with their doctors for personal advice before consuming it.
If the goat has a kid that nurses no. If the goat just gave birth and the kid is gone it is best to milk the goat or she will experience a lot of pain due to milk in the udders. You need to milk her twice a day. Goat milk is very good to drink.
