About the Author

This section is divided into several areas dealing with the overall health of goats, medicines and methods used, as well as a variety of known experiences from our visitors and friends. There is also a section on Drug Database that we will continue to add to as our research continues. Here you will find many links and resources as well to many other sites that have through years of proven experience, produced healthy herds that anyone would be proud to own.
