I don't think immunity gets passed down? I would only worm after kidding, if at all. If it gets passed down through the milk so be it. But I'm not a fan of chemicals in any sort of pregnancy, so I would NOT do that.

How long can your poster be? There's a WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOLE lot of info that can and should be included; or do you just want the basics?

I would stick to basics, when to give what meds, stages of gestation, length of gestation, mention things to watch out for, time you might need to get a vet involved. And overall how too maintain health while pregnant to help insure a healthy delivery and healthy kids

I would say that you should include information about the importance of minerals like selenium and copper. These were things that I would have liked to know before my goats kidded. Some of my kids were really selenium deficient.
