    I was just wondering who uses CMPK?

    If you use it does your goat go totally crazy after you let them go? Mine shake their head and sneeze and stick out their tongue like I gave them something that burns. They will run tot he walls and wipe their face on the walls, and even stick out their tongue and wipe it on the wall or come to me and wipe it all over me. It is almost like they say "How dare you, here take that". :ROFL:

    I give it to my girls that are getting really big and close there due dates so they have extra calcium.

    I haven't used CMPK but I have used another calcium supplement and they just absolutely hate it. Must not taste good anyway you give it.

    I'm pretty sure it's a calcium supplement.

    C = Calcium
    M = Magnesium
    P = Phosphorus
    K = Potassium

    Its a mix of the 4 for treatment of milk fever and I think ketosis.

    I have noticed when I have girls that are as big as a house they seem to be able to deliver those monster babies easier and they do better after wards. I only give it to those like i said that are HUGE. If they are carrying twins or more those babies take a lot of the calcium from mom that she really needs.

    I do not know if it really helps a lto or not but i feel better doing it. It can not hurt.

    The way I found it was years ago I had a doe down after she delivered twins. I went in 20 hours after she had the twins, and pulled out another doe. Mom would not get up and she was going down fast. Called a friend and she asked if I had CMPK? No I did not. I had to go get my calcium pills crush them and gave them to the doe, let her have all she wanted. That is all the saved her life. After that I went and bought CMPK, and I have it at all times. Same doe did the same thing last year. She retained a 15# baby. I went in pulled it and she was going down again. Gave her the CMPK and she was back to herself.

    I would try giving the doe who has issues with retaining kids more selenium. Does she have really good contractions or are they just so so?

    Hmmm. I thought about buying this before but I think I will definitely have it in our kidding kit. Good to know this.

    My goats hate just about everything I stick in their mouths. Except one, Lyla will eat just about anything with gladness. ;)

    From the periodic table of elements, K is the letter for Potassium, as to who said that that's what K meant, I have no idea, I always thought that it was weird :)

    I use the Goats Prefer brand called Calcium Drench....same thing as CMPK. Directions on the bottle is 1 oz at or just before delivery and another oz 12 hours later...With my mini's I split the dose, it does eem to help with the "after delivery" laziness.
