Basically take warm water add dish soap... then add in from the gallon you mixed up of dip to the dishsoap water.... bathe... rinse and pour remaining dip over goat.Take some dawn dishsoap and mix with warm water, about 16 oz add to that you made up gallon of "dip"
with wash cloth (wear gloves) wash goat from head to toe with mixture.
rinse all soap
take remaining dip and pour over goat, getting all the nooks and crannies
On baby goats we do a light rinse and then towel dry
On adult goats we will use a sprayer sometimes (you know the garden pump up sprayers people spray round up with) never use a sprayer that was used for anything else though... it is good because you can get nooks and crannies... but of course our goats are clipped. When they are hairy it doesn't work as well.
I like this method the best (bathing) but our goats like warm water baths so there is that. LOL
There is a product called cylence that you can draw up in a syringe and go from top of head down the spine. We use this on our bucks because they live in the deep woods and ticks are unbelievable here. I mean unbelievable! That is always an option too.
Always wear gloves when using any of these products. Milk withdrawal is one milking.
