    Hi everyone. I just posted a thread regarding my does milking and I already have another question!

    Basically, I live in Dade City, Florida.
    I’ve been feeding my NDG medicated feed until now since I want to consume their milk. So how long should I wait for their bodies to cleanse from the medicated feed?
    The medicated feed is to prevent coccidiosis, which they tell me is rampant here. The goat milk will be used to make soap, lotions etc. And for family consumption. Thank you ahead for your input!

    I'm not sure of the exact withhold but a couple of weeks should take care of it. You can use it for soap in the meantime.
