    Too pricey?

    For a buck I would go with papered, I made the mistake with taking an unreg buck now, am changing over because it is too limiting. I would still buy a nice unreg doe but not a buck, remember your buck is half your herd's genetics. :old

    Advice needed prior to purchasing a LGD

    Boer Kid Not Herself - Fast Heart Rate

    I have also had good luck with this recipe in treating scours and buying time against the cocci bug. Worth making even if you don't have the slippery elm although it coats the tummy and settles it, but the other herbs in the tea stop the really does work. You can try: 1 tea...

    Boer Kid Not Herself - Fast Heart Rate

    Yup, while you are there get the prevention cocci additive. Taken from Fiasco Farms website: "After some research, I found that, though many people use Corid (amprolium), but it dose not work as well as Sulmet (sodium sulfamethazine) or Albon (sulfadimethoxine). I decided to try Sulmet 12.5%...
