How did you feed the Fir Meadow? I have been using it too and my only big complaint is that I have to drench it mixed with molasses & two of my does just hate it and it is a rodeo, completely with them spitting it back on me lol.
My La Manchas like it and suck it out of the syringe, the NDs, not so much!
Okay, I have never tried the ball method. I will give it a shot next time around. One of my NDs has simply epic skills at spitting it back on me practically no matter how I try to shoot it down her throat...
I make Molly's dosage balls. 2 goats eat them like treats, 3 hate them. I shove them all the way to the back of their cheek back against their teeth. The only time they manage to get it back out is if I didn't do a good job of smooshing it into their teeth/cheek.
It hasn't run out yet, and it has been a month. We have 11 goats currently. For the first few days, be sure to give twice a day. I mix GI Soother and DWorm A together and give it twice weekly, at her suggestion, since NJ is humid and is worse for worms than the area Kat is from. I'm still very happy with their condition.
