I prefer to let mom raise my kids. I have found they are healthier, and they have a much better life if they are dam raised. I see all pros amd no cons to dam raising. What do you prefer to do?

"I can't speak for others but I know some people in my area weigh their goats and do it by weight. I had my vet help me decide - we do 4grams for all adults and yearlings and 2g for kids.  Works well and I've only seen positive…"

"I have always used 1 gram per 20 pounds, so my adults get 4 grams. That was based on experience of breeders and research studies. Look at your goats and listen to them. Did they look better after bolusing? One size does not fit all. It depends on…"

Copper Bolus Dosage

The last time I bolused my herd I gave my bucks and adult does 4g copper, and junior does got 2g copper. Everything I have read says that even adult Nigerians need 2g. So will it hurt my adult does if they got 4g? Should I give the 2g to everyone next time? Or just keep it at 4g? Help would be appreciated! Thanks!

I have an abseloutly FABULOUS buck for sale! This boy is proven! His sire is GAY MOR LEMON POT O GOLD! His dam is Muddy Creek FIN Dasani. The reason I am selling him is because, I just have no room for him. I am keeping a buck this year, and just won't be able to cram them all in there. He was tested CAE Negative in 2011. Plans to retest after kidding. His daughters and sons have been gorgeous. I have retained three. Two will be in the ring this year. His price is $400. He also has blue eyes!…See More

"That's why I said "Specifically if you have CL in your herd." Which would mean you have tested, and would know if you do or do not. If you have tested, and you know CL is not an issue, then that would not be a con for you, but it…"

"But let me ask you this, if that doe is tested negative, how will the doe pass it on to her kids if she doesn't have it. So again for me, all pros no cons..... Oh and forgot to add, not trying to start any arguments over which is better!"
