Goat health management is very unique to the area located. In Western Montana it is necessary to give a copper supplement or they will fail. Copper bolus your goats and see the parasite resistance, hair color improve and fur coat grow. Fertility is also affected. This deficency is due to copper antagonists in the soils and lack of the mineral in the soil.
Hi Again, Just posting more to see if there is an interest here locally in western Montana a for goat friends... for goat discussions. They are part of my permaculturesustainable living lifestyle.
Did you know goat milk from Swiss breeds often have the strongest goaty flavor in the milk? They are bred to have strong flavored milk....I guess that's an acquired taste. I seek the light sweet clean tasting milkers. It is an inheritable trait as is production, butterfat and shape of the teats for ease of milking.
