I vaccinate and I have Tennesse Fainting Goats.
I use the vaccine for the Tetanus mainly because I tattoo everyone and band when I want wethers.
Thats one thing I wouldn't want to worry about tetanus.
I wouldn't band with them having their vaccine.
I also dont want to eat an intact buck. Wethered is much better and easier! :)

Over eating disease, I wouldn't want to have to worry about that either.
In spring they go from hay to pasture and I sure wouldn't want to loose one because of an illness thats preventable. IMO, that would be a waste. I wont eat a sick animal.

To me, its just practical to give vaccines.

Before, when we raised only meat goats we didn't vaccinate and didn't have any problems, but with our reg. goats we vaccinate and don't take a chance on overeating and tetanus. I have heard that fullbloods are more prone to diseases than mixed breeds, and from our experience that is true with worms especially.
