Does anyone on here know of the cheapest ultrasound for goats? The last time I preg tested my goats I just took them to the vet... and that is cheep. Our vet just charged $10 each.. but that soon adds up if you keep doing that..

Ya.. I’m just not sure if I want to pull blood my self..
So easy to do!! It took me awhile to get the guts……..and a post here asking if there was ANY possible way of harming the goat, to learn how to pull blood but was amazed at how easy it was. If doing yourself slap a rope halter on and tie with their heads up high. The higher the head the more that vein seems to pop out

Yea, super easy. I do have my husband tbat helpes. We have a put 7 girls we have to do in 3 weeks. I hate needles and blood but I hated sending $$ too too. Looked up a few videos and thought, we could do this. Tried ot...first time was a bit wild, but every year since has been much easier. I have several now that I can straddle their back, pull up their head and take it on my own.


Might be something to consider in the future.
