Here at Riversdell there is lot of competition around the feed trough. Yesterday we gave the two small white does and our four kids another CD/T vaccination. The does are done but the kids get another one in 4 – 6 weeks. Not all goatherds vaccinate with CD/T, but most do. This year we were late with the pregnant does’ vaccinations (they pass on initial immunity to the kids) and we lost our first three kids suddenly, presumably to tetanus.
