    How do you all keep records of your goats? So far I don't have kids, but I would like to start recording maintenance stuff -- probably a good habit to get into now, before there are any kids or millking to be done.

    Anyone willing to upload a blank sheet with your format?

    I use My Animal Manager, it is AWESOME!! It's only $9.99 FOREVER, one time fee, and it is at:

    http://homesteadapps.com/

    It keeps track of EVERYTHING!!! Costs, breeding records, birthing and death records, sales.... on and on and on! It is SOOOO helpful! It is worth every cent! Good luck! Hope this helps!

    I have an excel program that I use...can't even remember where I got it from...(over 40 brain not working properly) I can email it to you if you are interested. I don't know how to get the attachment onto this site..(also an over 40 brain thing). I don't use the excel program I just print the page out and keep in the book with my registrations....in the winter I like to cozy into my favorite chair and get the book out and update everygoats page...
    LMK if you'd like it [email protected] is my email address.
