    Coronavirus Covid-19 Is it Affecting You and How?

    I have been going into the office, but it became a directive that that I have to work from home. Only about 25% of the people were coming into the office, so I felt I was safe there and prefer going into the office. So, when I came home this afternoon I brought my monitors, docking station...

    Corona virus just blocked a goat sale. I have a buyer for one of my bucks and they are in Oklahoma. The transporter was originally scheduled to pick him up tomorrow, but they have postponed for at least 2 weeks. I can't say as I blame them. Oh and one other thing. I haven't been updating...

    Just got the results of my first fecals.

    Just got the results of my first fecals.

    Worm the 3 with Safeguard for goats. Don't use horse paste. 1 cc per 10 lbs for 5 days. That's what I would do. Then wait 10 days and run another fecal on those 3.

    Kidding season at sweet horizon minis

    I think a "roan" has white hair interspersed among dark hair and and with an "agouti" each hair follicle is white and dark colored.. I think that's how it is. :) Roan is usually associated with horses and cows.

    I wouldn't hesitate to use peroxide if it is oozing and smelly. Check temperature. I wouldn't use antibiotics yet unless she has a temperature.

    Are Goat studs profitable?

    I don't think that getting a couple of bucks just to have a stud business is a very good business plan. I'll put it that way. :) I don't know a good business plan for making much money with goats. If I come up with one, I'll let you all know.
