    Buck with Poor Body Condition, Anemia, Flaky Skin

    I am waiting to hear back from the Rollins lab about some specifics I needed answered before we attempted blood draws ourselves. This is just the kick in the butt we needed to get them CAE and CL tested as well. Anything else you would suggest testing for? In the meantime, Pee Dee RAN to greet...

    Buck with Poor Body Condition, Anemia, Flaky Skin

    I found it! $15 for a Johnes fecal sample test. I'll give them a call tomorrow to be sure, but hopefully we can get this resolved so I can take action if it is Johnes.

    Buck with Poor Body Condition, Anemia, Flaky Skin

    The buck is separated from the does right now, but he is normally housed for most of the year in with our does. Is it a blood test for Johnes? If so, I'll need to call my local vet pronto to see if he can do a blood draw. Hubby is an EMT-Paramedic and could do the blood draw, but I'm sure they...

    Ivermectin PLUS Injectable for Goats?

    Horns vs. No horns. What do you like best?

    It's personal preference, really. Sort of like the "should I declaw my cat?" debate with pet owners. I have had Boers (all horned) and now we have disbudded dairy goats. We do have one that is horned. It is possible to get punctured or scratched badly by horns, so it is not entirely impossible...

    Just out of curosity, were the bucks the darker ones? Wonder what the chances are you carried a set of twin and a set of triplets at the same time. Hmm. All look healthy and happy! Congrats!

    Compare and Contrast Heritage Breeds?

    We purchased two Yorkshire/Potbelly cross boars last fall to grow out to process. They are growing really slowly and are short and stocky like the potbelly. I would LOVE to get my hands on some Large Black Hogs to breed ourselves.

    Is SafeGuard wormer safe for my pregnant doe?

    Safeguard is a really ineffective wormer around here. We only use it if we know the goat has tapeworms since it does work on them. You may want to ask for an alternative such as Ivomec Plus. Valbazen is good, but NOT for pregnant does.
