From what I understand they are just like the bucks (genetic wise) you have some does that are bigger and better than others.

Man ronn what kind of work do you do? LOL just joking. I think that I read that the most mature doe or does get priority by like sparring with the front hooves with other does for seniority or something. I don't know.

Just ask Tiger Woods if genetics are important. Same for deer, better genetics, better baby animals. Good genetics/nutrition more chance of twins & healthly offspring. IF you believe in the spike gene possibility, then genetics play a big role in buck offspring. Take a look at the dairy industry, they want to clone the best mike producers which have been built by genetics through breeding, yes artificial insemination, but the product came from live animals, no pun intended.
