We're just starting with 7 adults and 2 month old kids. What other remedies work besides buying expensive chemicals? Please give your tried results. Sharon Sandmann

Visit this page:

http://www.dirtdoctor.com/org_research.php

Scroll down to Diatomaceous earth and read the information and links you will find there. If you do a "search" for Diatomaceous earth (or DE) you will find lots of information in this forum.

I hope this helps.

Also you can use Basic H. I use both. Tx A&M did a study on goats and DE.
With their kissing up to chemical companies, they probably wish they hadn't done the study on goats, but it is out there.

article in Acres USA about 8 or ten years ago indicated that feeding fish meal to goats kept internal worms under control. I tried it on a small flock of sheep for six months and it seemed to work. I used 1/4 D.E.,1/4 fish meal, 1/4 kelp meal, and 1/4 mineral salt, and fed free choice. If you are feeding the animals grain (which you shouldn't be doing) , you should add D.E. and fish meal to the feed. Also try to feed hay,sugar beet pulp, molassas,and other plant products rather than feeding grains.

I would be afraid to use fish meal in any
animal that someone is going to eat or
milk. The taste of fish might come
through the the meat and milk. Years
ago turkeys were fed fish meal and if
they were not taken off early enough,
you Thanksgiving meal had two tastes -
turkey and fish.

We have miniature cows and horses. We adding 26 goats - 20 doelings, 5 does, and one buckling + one guarding dog to protect them. I had my vet in the office this afternoon and he says after 5 to 10 years the parasites will be terrible no matter what chemical wormers you use.
I don't have the experience with goats but my experience with cows is not the same as others. Our cow patties last less than two weeks except douring cold weather. With DE, it is working all the time - in or out of animals. Because of being organic we have bacteria working in the soil which help control parasites. We are also getting a healthy population of worms that work the soil.
I will kep everyone posted as we proceed with goats, but I don't think we will have problems. I think the above stuff will work, but we will rotate grazing and we will not let them sleep in the same spot every night - we will rotate sleeping areas to keep build up spread out and so nature can do its thing.

I have 25 dwarf nigerian and pygmy goats, 6 pet dogs, 3 guard dogs, miniature horses, large horses, 7 donkey and a lama. I use an herbal organic wormer that we sell in their food once a week and feed them DE in their food daily and I have never had worms in any of them since I started that. Dosage for mature goats is 1-1/2 tsp. weekly. It is available in 1/2 lb. ; 1 lb; 2 lb.; 4 lb.
You do not have to withholfd food nor will it affect them if they are pregnant, nursing and will not affect the milk taste.

I use the herbal wormer from Sanger General store. I have over 60 head of dwarf pygny and boer goats and it works great! I was not sure it would but I am very pleased and I have had less coccidia too.
