British Guernsey Goats

  Details about our goats:

What do they eat? Mainly TN-made high quality alfalfa hay with loose Sweetlix Magnum milk minerals and two kinds of carefully selected probiotics. We supplement with a locally-milled dairy goat ration, black strap molasses, beet pulp, and black oil sunflower seeds on the stanchion to help "wash down" their herbal wormer because they don't love the taste.  We rotate them between a dry lot and open pasture (as weather allows). 

What type of "prophylactic care" do we use?  We do not vaccinate, chemically deworm, give coccidiostats, give antibiotics, castrate, or disbud unless medically necessary. But, we do use BoSe injections or Selenium/VitE paste, copper boluses, herbal wormer, and carefully-selected probiotics. 

What about communicable diseases? We test annually for Johne's, have never had any issues with CL, Scrapies, or CAE. We source all of the stock we bring in from tested flocks. This breed is lucky and we have not had many instances of the "typical dairy goat diseases". They are very hardy, healthy animals with excellent feed to milk conversion.
