    Can goats drink from a clear water pond that has ducks and fish? Could I let this be their source of water or is it too dangerous?

    Hello, I just purchased some CDT to administer to my does. I wanted to vaccinate the kids too, I have 7 of them. Is this okay? Also, instructions say to apply 2ml per goat. Hope it also applies to kids? Any advice appreciated. Thanks!

    Yesterday we butchered our oldest goat (close to 12 years old) because she was bloated and in pain. Her temp was normal so we suspect no fever or inflammations. I think she had got to much fodder (we've almost stopped giving them fodder, rather giving them hay) or some such as her intestines...

Will it hurt the baby if she stays in milk? We do have formula for baby goats, and we were planning on using it anyways... I really need to...
