    3 ND goats. 1 mamma (2 y.o.) with her buckling (3 mo) and a doeling (3 mo) from a different mom. None have had any vaccinations.

So for some reason she gives CDT in the middle of winter just before the Does are bred, She just bought two Does that were given their CDT last May.

  8. Beginners Goat Raising
    so does any one use the preventative vaccine prior to breeding sheep and goats? Like the vibriosis or enzootic shot-vaccines? When do you give the shot? If so, where do you get them/buy them? What are they called? Are they worth the money, or necessary?

    I have a few goat vets in the area, but I am wondering if it would be more cost effective, and easier to vaccinate my own goats? Now I have never given anything an injection so this would be a completely new experience. How hard is it for someone who has never done it? Would you recommend a...
