It is simple science. Mother Nature tries to set up a win situation. If the does have abundant food and no stress Mother allows more babies. If feed is poor and or the does are stressed, Mother does not make the situation worst by adding babies to the mix. Urine, feces build up, tight living quarters, etc. All will contribute to less production. So Happy well feed goats are going to produce more.

Genetics also play. Keep does from the triplet producers.
