What diseases should my sheep and goats be vaccinated against?
We recommend that all sheep and goats be vaccinated against Tetanus and Clostridium perfringens Type C & D. Pregnant animals should be vaccinated against Campylobacter fetus and possibly Chlamydia psittaci.
When should I deworm my sheep and goats?
Sheep should be dewormed at least twice a year using a rotational protocol. Goats encounter more resistance issues with intestinal parasites, so please call us for our recommendations.

We recommend shearing your sheep prior to lambing and/or before the summer months arrive.

Before lambing or kidding, we suggest feeding molasses approximately one month prior to parturition. Please call us with any questions or further recommendations.
