    Has anyone out there tried doing their own fecals on their goats? How do you go about doing this? What all equipment do you need?

    Thanks,

    I just recently started playing around doing my own fecals.....I use this site from Langston University..... http://www2.luresext.edu/goats/library/fec.html#fec ........I also bought my microscope on ebay from microscopes unlimited.....it pays in the long run to get a good quality scope, I tried with a cheap one and could see nothing. I think my scope with shipping was a little over $100.00, I bought a students microscope......oh, I also ordered the McMaster slide to and I really like it, makes counting easier.
    Hope this helps, Denise

    I did not get a chance this weekend to try all of this out, but I will try next weekend. Stacey, I did find the previous posts on doing your own fecals.

    Thanks all!
