    what material do you use for goat dry lot and how do you convert pasture into dry lot

    Doeling with a cut

    Alright I will see if I can make that happen. Should I give her any booster? The whole herd including her got their 1st Dose of the CL and CDT vaccine yesterday. If that matters. Should I give her anything for the swelling?
