    Hi Everyone,
    I have just recently found this website and really like reading the posts! We have had goats for about 3 weeks now. Has anybody used the herbal wormer from Fias Co Farm? I have just started using it and was hoping someone else would have some experience with it.

    Thanks,
    Greg

    Hi and welcome.

    I am sure there are folks on here that have used it. I have used the herbal wormer from Hoeggers with good results (they are pretty much the same as Molly's).

    I am going to try Molly's wormer as I have talked with her via email regarding it.

    Just remember some people have good results with herbal wormers and others don't. I prefer herbals myself.

    We use Molly's herbal wormer. The only bad thing with it is my goats hate it, I am working on getting them used to it. If/when they get to like it it will be SOOOO easy!

    When I got my goats I used the wormer from Fiasco Farm... well they REFUSED to eat it. I had to add molases, a little water, and stir it in their grain, and even then they would only eat a little then just pick at it. So I stopped- figured it was more trouble than it's worth. But some goats must like it and I like the concept of natural wormers.

    just watch natural/herbal wormers with young kids (under 6 months).

    Nothing was confirmed but some people have had some kids die and it was a linking factor.

    Thanks for the responses. Most of my goats eat it fine mixed with their grain. For the other one I put it inside a piece of bread and she eats it fine that way.

    Actually, I've had trouble with the goats eating the black walnut/wormwood wormers. They don't taste to good.
    Crystal Creek Naturals sells an herbal wormer, it's expensive but it does work and the goats LOVE it. Its called Para-Tak. Google Crystal Creek Naturals and their site should come up.
    We also worm with a black walnut tincture but you really have to be experienced and know how to use it. Black walnut is a tricky thing, anything made from the hulls or the bark mostly. I almost killed one of my does with the tincture. You really have to know how to use it and I have learned since then.
