Gwen and I went to the fecal egg count training hosted by the Texas Agrilife Extension service and given by Doc Frank Craddock last week. We went out yesterday and got some samples from various goats and did the float thingy and looked under the microscope and didn't find many worms to speak of! WOOOOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We are relatively worm free! I guess all of our diligence in using pasture rotation, frequent FAMACHA checks, worming only when needed instead of blanket worming, and culling out the problem goats has worked for us. The hardest one is the culling both emotionally and financially. Emotionally cuz I'm the softy and Gwen has to wait till I'm off tugboatin' to call the meat buyer :cry: , and financially cuz you don't want to cull a high dollar goat just cuz she's wormy all of the time, but she is shedding larva that the other goats will pick up. We were thinking of doing the COWP think to treat for worms, but I guess we don't really need to. Now if we could just get our new barn baby, Pretty Girl, to adapt to the herd and grazing thing we will be doing good! She is coming along slowly, but surely!
