    They should get a CD/T vaccination every year also.

    I would also suggest giving a pnemonia annually as well as the CD&T.

    I give BO SE, every 50 or 60 days. and I give a vitamin b complex shot, every couple of months. just to be on the safe side, and keep them healthy.
    my goats, hate the loose minerals, and won't eat them, I mis in with the food, but you know, they are fussy, but I make sure I give them their shots, and feed 3d cutting alfalfha hay to the gasl, and goat chow, don't give horse feed, unless it has enough copper in it.
    just some tips , to keep them all healthy..

    Maybe this will help.

    At 6 weeks, and 12 weeks, I give a dose of Valbazen to worm with. After that I use either Cydectin pour on (Given ORALLY) or Ivermectin Injectable (Given ORALLY).

    If you disbud horns at 1-2 weeks old I give a Tetanus Antitoxin shot
