We are building a new small barn from our small herd are finalizing the drawings.  I am curious to know what kind of doors have worked well in your barns?  The door is an exterior door from the goat…Continue

"Here is the update.  After about 1 hr of snuggling inside the house wrapped in a towel in front of the masonry fireplace, he finally stopped trembling so he graduated back to the barn.  Mama was happy to see him and received him well.…"

"It's a balancing act. The shivering is somewhat worrisome, but you also don't want him to stay away from mom for too long. But if he's not nursing, you'll have to get milk into him with a bottle, which usually takes a ton of…"

Trembling kid

Yesterday I had my three 1 week old kids disbudded by the vet.  Everything went well.  This afternoon he must have knocked one of his horns, blood was gushing every where.  Luckily we caught it within 10 minutes of it happening.  I brought him in to the house to clean him up, I pressed a cloth against the point of bleeding and the bleeding has stopped.  But he is trembling like crazy.  I though maybe he was scared, it is his first time outside the barn and away from mama and sisters.  So I took…See More

"Ok, well then I'll give that a try on Monday.  Apparently my local farmers exchange is a dealer, although I've never seen any of their products there.  But maybe I'll be in luck and they can order me some."

"We just got some in December. I didn't even look for it on their website. I just looked for a dealer, emailed him, and told him I wanted the selenium-E supplement, and he ordered it for me."

"Deborah, Thanks for the links.  Is it possible that Fertrell no longer sells their Selenium/Vit E powder?  I can't see it on their website.  I see a mineral blend that they call Grazers choice but it has kelp, calcium, phospahte,…"

"There is a post on here about this topic from last fall. Several of us tried some of the horse seleniums, and the goats ate it up like candy, which would quickly get very expensive! Someone else discovered a selenium-E being sold by Fertrell, which…"

Need source of Selenium/Vit E powder

Does anyone have a source of Selenium/Vit E powder to order from?  I am all out, and Hoeggers Farm Yard are not answering their phones so I am hesitant to place an order online.  I don't see anyone else carrying it for goats online.  All I see in Selenium/Vit E powder for horses, is this the same stuff?  Or is there something different in the equine formulation?  Any info is helpful, thanks!JudySee More

"I like the idea of linoleum or vinyl for the flooring, as it would be easier to keep clean. Ceramic tile is more slippery, but even kids have learned to walk on that (in my living room)."

"Thanks Deborah!  Yes, one door from each goat pen to the outside.  We decided to go for hinged doors, dutch style.  And there is an interior door from each pen to the milking room.  The floor in the milking room is a wood floor,…"

"Looks good to me! I wasn't clear on whether or not you had doors from the goat pens directly to the outside, but I'd definitely want to have that."

"If it is one sliding door, and you can lock it, it should work fine. Two sliding doors that meet in the middle are not really stable enough. Goats can push them open."

I looked up his pedigree and will send you details tomorrow. He's registered with ADGA. Sire's bloodline is mostly Chenango Hills and dam's bloodline is mostly Dawnland. Chenango Hills has many milk stars and national milking awards.

Hi,

He has scurs- horn scurs- not scours. He's very healthy.

I need to look up the boys' pedigrees for you. The buckling did sire kids, for a woman I had originally sold him to. But then she decided she didn't like his color (brown and white) and wanted more colorful goats. I have both of his parents and they're wonderful goats, so I took him back and have been trying to decide whether to sell him. He has scurs, so I wouldn't charge very much for him. His dam is a good milker. I should be able to send you details of his bloodlines tonight or tomorrow.
