We take our goats for a daily walk in the woods - good for all of us.  They enjoy it so much and really get a selection of forage.  Right now there are blackberries and  do they  love them.     Also a few falling apples that we cut up for them.  The…Continue

I have a question about milk production please help me..

Posted by Kara Agoston on August 10, 2014 at 10:51am 8 Comments

Hi I am posting not knowing if this is the right way to do it as it's my first time posting. My question is that I am milking for the first time and I have a first freshener and I have only been milking her in the morning. I take the two doelings away from Mom at night as I have a stall separator that allows them to be beside mom but separate. I only milk her in the am and return her to her babies for the whole day. I noticed the amount I have been getting from her is decreasing. Should I be…

Re-growth after disbudding

Posted by Ralph Paterno on June 12, 2014 at 3:59pm 3 Comments

We have an 8 week old buckling who we neutered this morning using a Ritchey Nipper!  It went smoothly relatively speaking.  About a week ago though I noticed a different issue - a scur coming up.  Now they are in 3 places, about 1/2 inch tall and pretty thin (so they are kind of sharp).  What should I do?  I'm concerned about him hurting someone else when headbutting.  Do I have him re-burned by the vet? (I'm doing the burning next year)!   cut them myself somehow (how?)?  Any ideas.…

Cutting back

Posted by Lyn Adams on June 10, 2014 at 9:47am 1 Comment

Recently a friend asked how much I feed my goats and how often. Well as of Monday I have cut back from twice a day to only am feeding. They have all the second cut they want and fresh water, minerals and baking soda . We built a 3 sided shelter for them as well, I now lock them out of the barn durning the day. This really will help to keep the barn cleaner longer. Hope this doesn't sound cruel . Curious to know what other people do.
