Just starting a goat farm... click here first!
Good goat care is critical to your success in maintaining a healthy herd. The health of your herd is determined 50% by the farm conditions and 50% by the breed. Kiko goats are one of the most parasite resistant and self-sufficient breeds in the world making them very sought after.
As you will learn, most medications for goat care are considered “off label”. This mean the drugs were tested for use in other kinds of animals but not officially tested or supported by the manufacturer for goats. We are NOT veterinarians but we share here what has worked well for us. With a little learning and investment in supplies, you should be able to adequately care for your herd. However, before you have the need, find a veterinarian that has experience with goats… they are a different livestock and require someone with years of hands-on goat care to be good.
