We've had goats for almost two years. We have registered Nubians and will be introducing a small ND buckling this week. I have become so obsessed about their manure. I have two adult does, one in milk and the other dry. The dry doe had soft, clumpy manure about 1.5 months ago and I brought her to the vet. He is an expert in goats and owns at least 30 Nubians himself. He didn't want to do a fecal. He looked at the manure she "released" on his stanchion and determined it was "x" worms. I don't even remember which kind. Her eye lids apparantly were also fine. He told me Safeguard for three days at 8cc per day. I did that and she seemed to clear up pretty quickly. She was back to having goat berry-type manure, after having this soft, log-like manure for a few weeks. Even though she was having goat berry-type manure, she also was having intermittent clumpy manure and even soft, log-like type manure. As a side note, while I was giving the dry doe Safeguard, she simultaneously was getting Molly's herbal Formula 1 balls those three days. Today, the intermittent clumpy, soft, log-like manure is consistent and I haven't witnessed any goat berries in at least 1-2 weeks. The other doe, who is in milk, has mainly had goat berries, but recently has had more clumping to her manure. We move them with a mobile goat structure every 5-7 days. They also get green hay daily, which they gobble down. There is plenty of weeds and pasture, but they just love this hay. It's green grass and alfalfa. I also give them a total of 8 cups of organic alfalfa pellets, 1/2 cup of diaomaceous earth, and almost a cup of BOSS. The two does and two kids (11 weeks old) share this, although, it's mostly eaten by the two adult does. They also have free choice New Country Organics with Copper mineral, baking soda, and kelp. They don't touch the kelp much, but they definitely take in the b. soda and mineral. I don't know if it's something I'm feeding them, or am I over feeding them? The doe in milk has been with us since March and then gave birth in April on our property. The dry goat has been with us for almost two years and has had a history of mixed manure (goat berries and soft, log-type) for a long time. My inexperienced mind thinks that we move them enough and can't believe they could have a high load of worms, especially the dry one who seemed to have turned around immediately after Safeguard. Also, their coats look shiny and they both look great. Their eyelids are checked almost daily and, although I don't have a FAMACHA card, they look pinkish, sometimes light and sometimes medium. We check the kid goats as well and they are dark pink. Their manure looks totally normal (goat berries), but they also nurse a lot and mostly eat the pasture and hay. Last thing, when the goat, who is in milk, had given birth, we did not worm her. Instead, we gave her worm balls for seven days per recommendation from a friend with goats. I'm kicking myself that I had not wormed her with Safeguard or something. What do you guys think about the manure and what I'm feeding them. We are learning A LOT and we (mostly ME) love these goats. I think about them a lot and want to take such good care of them.
