I am very interested in this subject and wanted to get some more opinions on it. Obviously, doing your own fecals helps you have a better idea of who are the thriftiest, hardiest goats in your herd. If you have an animal who is always having a high worm count, looking and producing poorly and needing constant worming, the easiest decision would be to get her out of your herd, however you want to do that. At the opposite end of the spectrum, you have the animal who never needs worming and is in great condition. It would also be an easy decision to decide to keep her. But what about the animal with a high worm count who is in great condition? Her body can tolerate more worms, so she is a hardy goat, but would you be worried about her shedding parasites to the other goats? I'd be interested to hear some thoughts about what people would do if they had a goat like that. Keep or cull?
