Alright, so I feel like there's questions I should probably seek answers to that I haven't yet found through Google or my goat book that I have. So I'm gonna compile a little list. Please just answer what you can, if you can, and if pictures need provided for any reason, please let me know. Note: They seem to be doing just fine on it and I was successful with Waldo when I had him, but if I need to change something, I would rather know by information versus error. They do not actively have any health issues that I know of.
- My kids will be ten days old come February 20th. They are Boers. How much should they be eating and how often? If I follow Manna Pro's packaging instructions, it claims 12 onces a feeding, 24 ounces total. I have, instead, been feeding them several small meals throughout the day, usually giving a slightly larger amount before bed time and first thing in the morning.
- Is it correct I should have them taken in for shots at about three months? If so, what kind? To be frank, I do not think the farmer takes these measures, so I am considering doing it myself before returning them.
- Waldo died of worms because the farmer uses a kind they are apparently resistant to. He refuses to change, so my mother and I will be seeking something better to give them prior to their return to the farm. What brand would you recommend to someone living in the Midwest, USA?
- Last time, the farmer gave us the feed he gives his goats to wean Waldo off onto. Should I continue this pattern, or should I try to find a product I find more suitable for weanlings?
