    I'd never heard this one. Collect fresh goat droppings, put them in a jar w/water(closed lid) and if parasites are present, worms will hatch out. Anyone familiar/try this? I can't see how you would detect microscopic parasites, but people claim at least they know IF their animals are wormy.
    Skeptical on this one!
