    $100 limit. What are "must haves" when raising goats? Medicines, maintenance, etc. And where do you order from?

    Please and thanks.

    Well, no one responded....

    I wasn't sure what to get, so I ordered from Jeffers:
    Storey's Guide to Raising Dairy Goats
    Shear Magic Hoof Trimmers
    Safe-Guard Dewormer for Goats
    Nutri-Drench
    UAA Gel - Charcoal
    Syringes/Needles Box of 100 (wasn't sure if these bottles poured or had to be pierced)
    14" Nylon Goat Lead

    Once I read threw Storey's Guide, I'll know what else I should buy the girls. I figure I did okay ordering. Plus I found a discount code for $5 off my order. :)

    At some point you may this or that but if you have a farm supply or good vet you should be able to stick with the basics if you can. I just worked on it all till it was here and now I have a little bit of it everywhere. LOL
