    Lamb with worms

    I have goats not sheep, but many products are labeled for both. I have found that most parasites are resistant to safeguard. In other words "it does not work". Use Cydectin. Dosage is on the label. I would also get Nutri-Drench and follow the dosage on the label. This helps with an animal that...

    took our first bull calf to the processor the other day

    Ok Here you go. These are soup bones that I had originally ordered for the dog. Then I SAW them!! Have not tried them yet.

    Pregnant?

    The rumen is on the left side of the goat. I am betting that is just a full rumen.

    What age to stop breeding does

    I have an 8 yr old who just had triplets. These will be her last. I don’t want to take a chance. A friend of mine retires hers at 10 yrs old.

    took our first bull calf to the processor the other day

    Yes. And we know how he was raised. Can't wait to try it next week. I'm off for a few weeks waiting for goat babies. I plan on doing a lot of cooking.

    took our first bull calf to the processor the other day

    Picked up just under 220 lbs. I'm glad he was not a big guy, because the freezer is FULL. We had custom labels made with our farm name, address and phone number. The cart rack thing was full of meat, we were in the process of loading it.

    took our first bull calf to the processor the other day

    No don't know live weight. I only fed him corn and grain the last 2 weeks. I should have started earlier. But he's grass fed and all natural. Very slow maturing breed, but you know, I think it will be enough beef for us to last 2 yrs.

    took our first bull calf to the processor the other day

    Me too. All grass fed natural beef. I can't wait. Between the beef, goat milk and cheese from the Nubians this year, and the veg garden, we should not have to buy much at the grocery store.

    took our first bull calf to the processor the other day

    Getting our first Scottish Highland meat soon. Our guy was 28 mos. Hanging weight 366 lbs. Small by most standard breeds I know, but great for the 2 of us. Should still be a bit over 200 lbs of take home beef. He loaded on the trailer great and got off calmly. Can't get any easier then that...

    First time goat owner and milking

    It depends. That's a lot of bred does invested in to not milk them. Did you get them specifically to milk?? Most of our dairy does were bottle raised kids. This makes them friendly and they fun TO you rather then away. If you don't bottle feed your kids from these does, they may be the same way...

    Keeping Bucks

    My advise is start out with 2 wethers. See if they stay in your fence, and get used to goats first. Baby goats are cute, but a lot can go wrong that requires experience to care for.
