How do I copper bolus? I want to order it from Jeffers, they have goat and sheep sizes but has anybody used it? Does anybody have pictures on how to copper bolus? Like each step with pics.

And what age can I bolus my doe? She's 4 months old and mostly all black but she's starting to get red hair on her. I forgot to add, how much would I fill up the little capsule, for weight wise? Shes a Nigerian dwarf. thanks:)

You can start bolusing her now.
Bolusing sounds a lot harder than it really is.;)
It is 1 gram pr 22lbs.
Get a cheap plastic balling gun from your feed store.
Put bolus in gun, put in back of the side of mouth & drop it right down the hatch.
Some put it in a marshmellow or between peanut butter crackers but the idea for the rods is to go down without being chewed.

We got ours from a vitamin shop through ebay. I think we gave our 50 pound Nubian kid 1 and a half for her weight. :)
