Deborah,

My goats are not coming into heat,  neither yearlings. Anything I can do to start a heat? Their mother has just had a short heat last month

Another concern is that the mom has developed bumps,  like hives,  on the right side of her udder. She still milks nicely and is eating well.  I walk them in the snow and wonder if this could be an irritant,  but why on half of the udder? The twins are separated from her at night and then i milk the next morning and the kids are with her during the day.  Any ideas here?  We're pretty much without a goat vet here in Fairbanks,  AK.         Thanks,  Barb Rondine

Deborah,

Remember the quints born this summer ? I kept the two doelings and they are 6 months old now. For the past two weeks, or so, one of them has started mounting and vocalizing and nipping at the others and pesters them almost all the time.  She developed a beard and shaggy eyebrows by four months and is very dominant.

  1. Her mother is polled, as is she, and her father is horned. Any ideas to stop this behavior?  Thanks,  Barb Rondine

Hello, Am Akinwale from Nigeria, we are planning on organizing an enlightenment program and training seminar on the first ever dairy goat farming in Nigeria. I wish to request for your partnership in terms of technical support since one of our choice animal is the Nigeria Dwarf Goat. We are expecting more than 200 prospective farmers to participate in the program. Hoping to hear from you soonest.
Regards. atepeakinwale@gmail.com.

Figure I'd give you an update on my doe. I've been using Solgar Chelated Zinc Tablets for almost 2 weeks and it seems to have made very fast difference in her hair and skin. Crust is gone! I've been dosing one 22mg tablet a day in milk stand feed. Though I was doing Eprinex pour-on before, that only seemed to work so much. I feel Zinc deficiency can be precursor to allow a mite attack and/or mimic it in ways. A lady I purchased a buck from had a doe with same condition for two winters we both had in our doe. She started using Zinpro Pro Care and saw great improvement.
This should be a help for future goat people looking for help and answers!

Thanks Deborah for the fast response! I concur with your thoughts on it being mites. I've picked up the Eprinex pour-on today and was planning on doing it tomorrow. Wondering what exactly you did to your girl. I was was going to do around 3ml down her back. How fast did you see results?

Few notes have your girls experience this before or recur in the same doe? Did her milk also cut back from symptoms of mites?

Hi Deborah, I'm the new member going to see my vet today. I seem to have two accounts on The Goat Spot. I signed up in October 2015 but when I revisited the site a few days ago I was informed that I didn't have an account and needed to sign up (again). How do I delete the first account I set up in October??

Thanks!

Thanks Deborah!

I just found out yesterday that Nigerian Dwarf's made it to our shores, which I'm really excited about, so I'm here to learn everything I can before I get started.
 Thank you for making this place, its awesome.

Happy new year :)
