"Given I need to test the entire herd, ill have to hold off until I reduce my herd a bit. I may have to do the culprits first and the others later. I just hope I can get thru this spring with no more teat issues! Thank you again!!"

"its high in protien. I had a bunch of quads until I stopped feeding it. I googled nutrition and it has a lot of stuff goats need. They like them too. lol Makes for an expensive feed bill though. Bulk or small bags cost the same per pound. "
