Hi Kerrie,
Welcome to the northeast. I live in upstate NY. We are also listed as selinium deficient. I just feed a goat feed mix that contains added selinium, and also leave out a mineral mix (free choice) that has selinium in it. My goats seem to being fine with this setup. There is an injection that you can give called bo-se, but I hesitate, as a selinium overdose can be deadly. The only true way you can find if your goats are lacking in selinium is through a blood test. I figure that their systems know what is lacking, and if they need the extra selinium, it's there for them in the mineral mix. Nat-who is a Goatworld Member lives in Conneticut. Hopefully she will stop by and see your post and be of some help in you acquiring some new animals in your area. Speaking of Nat, I believe she has a diagram of a goat stand on her website here at GoatWorld. You also may be able to get her e-mail addy on her website, and e-mail her personally with any questions you may have for her. She's a sweety, and I don't think she would mind. These are about all of the questions I can help you with. Good Luck.
