Feeding your goats is one of the most important factors to their health. There are so many aspects to goat nutrition that this will touch on the topic without getting extremely involved in digestion and anatomy. There are different ways to feed but the information I will give out here is, again, what has worked for me and results I have seen.
Deworming is an essential part of goat management. Goats can be prone to certain types of internal (and external) parasites. I've learned a few methods over the years to combat parasite resistance and treat each of my goats effectively. There are so many varying opinions and methods for deworming that you need to find whats right for your herd.
I've created this space for information on general goat wellness as well as treatments and guides on certain issues that I've personally encountered with my goat herd. If you're serious about rising goats you'll more than likely come in contact with one or more of these issues.
Please know that many of these posts are my own opinion and how I may do things. This is what works for me and my herd. There will always be differing opinions on diagnosis, treatment and husbandry. Please be considerate of others opinions and understand that what works for one person may not work for another and vice versa.
