Hey guys I have 3 month old female dairy goats and was wondering if they need shots/vaccines at the age?

Thanks

Producers usually give CDT starting early, so yes , if they have not had this, vaccinate 2ml subq now, and give a booster 2 weeks later. This vaccine is for tetanus and enterotoxemia. Some folks also vaccinate for pneumonia. Also, I would run a fecal and dose for coccidia prevention if you haven't already.....

No they don't need more salt. Quality loose minerals free choice - not dressed - supply all that is needed. Free choice hay. They may be bored - goats are goats and need outside stimuli to be happy and healthy.
