    Two of my nubian kids have lumps on them. The kids are about 5 weeks old. The buck has a small lump on his ribcage, the doe has one on her shoulder. They are small, hard and in the skin. The farmer I got the goats from said he has never had CL or even an abcess in his herd. Any ideas?

    I agree sounds like vaccination it kinda sorta in the armpit /rib area behind the front leg...or close by that?
    ASk the breeder... if she vaccinated them?

    I agree...if they have been vaccinated, those shots will cause lumps 95% of the time.
