Hello from Sherwood, Oregon
I have 2 young ladies that are pregnant for their first time. I was wondering if I should have formula & supplies at the ready just in case? If so, what do you recommend? I have raised Cashmere goats for years, they kidded with very few problems.

These will probably kid without problem also. 😊. I almost always have a bottle and preemie nipple on hand in case I need to milk some colostrum and help a slow starter,
or one of say, trips. Since I have had this herd for many years, I freeze colostrum and first few days milk every year...this is first year in many that I've needed to use any. A preemie.

I think you'll be fine. If you have any goat buddies, check if they have any on hand, just in case. I've shared with many over the years. Sometimes with a licensed rehabber for fawns.
