Worms, disease and flooding

Part of the land I have for the goats that I want floods. Usually when it floods, from the river,  it holds 1-2 foot of water for a week or two. Will this help clear the the ground or make it worse. Any thoughts? This will be the first time that the ground will have ever had livestock on it. Goats and Chickens. It is also next to farm land, mostly rice but some soybeans.See More

Unfortunately, we lost their dam a few short days after she kidded to gangrene mastitis that went septic. I blogged about her story here and…See More

Milking stools

It's getting to be about time that I think about purchasing milking equipment. I think I've found what I need for buckets, strip cup, etc., but I'm not at all sure what would be the best milking stool to have. Does anyone have any suggestions/recommendations? It might be helpful to add that I'm a pretty short person, just 5 feet. See More
