Started this discussion. Last reply by Deborah Niemann-Boehle Sep 5. 18 Replies

My first freshener who was due a week ago at this point still doesn’t look close. She is soft in the udder area but doesn’t have a bag yet and has slightly larger teats. I was able to squeeze milk…Continue

I bought a new doe in milk back in July. She started coughing a few days after I got her and at fist I just thought it was because of the stress of joining a new herd. Unfortunately it kept up and…Continue

"Just wanted to give a little update in case anyone else is having a similar problem. My girls look so good after 3 months on the new minerals. I see them eating it every day and have to refill constantly. Their coats are shiny and soft. My cream…"

"One of my biggest frustration is the number of terrible products on the market for goats. You're not the first person to have this happen. Hopefully you'll see some big improvements! "

"My poor goats are scarfing their new minerals like its grain or something amazing. I have never seen butter touch them before and she’s hogging them. I feel terrible that they were desperate for minerals and I had no idea they didn’t…"

"BBC was my dumb phone adding its own text for no reason and it won’t let me edit it. Oops Wow. That explains a lot. No wonder I’m having problems. I know I can get purina minerals at my local feed store so I’ll be getting a bag…"

"Redmond minerals are practically worthless. They are almost all salt with very little other real minerals in them. And unfortunately Manna Pro Goat Balancer is also mostly worthless. I'm sorry there are so many bad products on the market. I am…"

"I have Redmond goat mineral available to them at all times but one eats a little and the other turns her nose up at it. I really haven’t been impressed with it and suspected mineral issues so I have been giving them mana pro goat balancer as…"

"That sounds almost identical to what happened to us. We were okay the first two years, then suddenly we had fertility issues -- goats not getting pregnant, not staying pregnant, miscarrying, or having kids that had problems or disqualifying defects.…"

"She was only in with the buck for a half hour but we didn’t hold her. She was more than happy to stand for him. I’m starting to think we have something else going on because my other doe who is now a day overdue has more of an udder than…"

Deborah Niemann-Boehle replied to Heather L's discussion Overdue. Should I be doing something?
"I thought I had mentioned this here already, but it must have been in an email to someone else. If you had to hold her while the buck mounted her, then that would explain why she wasn't pregnant. Sometimes people say that they know the doe was…"

"Bummer but thanks for the peace of mind. I’ll stop being so on edge then. My other doe is due today so hopefully we get at least some babies this year. I don’t have a lot of space so we only keep two. Well conditioned is definitely how…"

"That does not look like a pregnant goat. You weren't kidding when you said she has no udder. You don't need to do anything. I'd keep an eye on her udder for a few more days just in case it suddenly balloons up, but she looks like…"

"I tried to post pictures but I’m not sure if it worked. My vet doesn’t do ultrasounds so I’d have to drive her 4 hours away to get it done. Can I just wait and see or do I need to get her an ultrasound?"
