Good morning. I have been finding a solid poop in the goats pasture once every a day or so when cleaning the pasture. I've watched all three poop pellets multiple times over the last few days and again this morning. Is this something to worry about? Everyone's color and actions is normal.

Probably just from eating grass with dew on it. If you are concerned, then have a fecal done to be sure.

I agree... wet graze will clump things up, letting it dry first helps two ways, stops the clumps and helps stop worm reinfestation...worm eggs travel up the grass blade on dew drops..goats eat it and repopulate the worm load

I recommend giving hay 30-40 minutes before setting them out to graze...Sets ther umen up and allow time for the sun to dry the dew

Ahh. That makes perfect sense. The few has been heavy here and I've been getting up earlier. Thanks.
