    My Dh was talking with someone who owns a feed store and the owner mentioned that there are lots of goat people coming in but he doesn't know what to stock for them because "nothing is for goats".

    So... I would love for you guys/gals to put up your list of things you would want on the shelf... think of the normal stuff but also the things you found you suddenly needed when you had an emergency and went to the store and they didn't have it.

    Two lists- if you can please.

    NORMAL STUFF
    EMERGENCY STUFF

    I am making a list but really think you guys could be more informative. We are very blessed as our store has started stocking pretty much everything we suggest.

    If someone has already listed it list it anyway so that we can see how in demand a certain item is.

    Thanks!

    C&D antitoxin is a must, as is Tetanus antitoxin.

    I don't think DiMethox can be had OTC anymore, at least not the powdered. So while Corid isn't the preferred drug for cocci it may be the best OTC drug we can buy.

    But that is not what I am asking- this is a smalltown store that wants to stock for goat keepers. They are looking to put stuff on their shelves for goat people.
    Not what you can get - lets say there was a store with NOTHING around you- what would you want?
