I always deworm on the first of the month. I used equimaxx last month. I usually alternat btwn cydectin and equimaxx. Is there a cheaper wormer than cydectin that's still good? I like to alternate to cover everything. I'm in Houston, Tx if that helps. Thanks!!

I wouldn't worm monthly. Eventually your goats are going to become immune. Or actually the parasites will become immune to it.

Worming this often is not necessary. That (and under dosing) is what creates resistance.
Your best call is to have fecals done & worm accordingly.

Okay that is just what I've been told for market wethers but I won't worm the girls. When I do a fecal on my 9 in the pasture should I take a couple samples? Or is 1 okay? They are in a different pasture than my does

I would get poop from a couple of the wethers and combine it. Get poop from the ones that look in the worst shape or are the skinniest.
