Kid Care & Selection Seminar
They are all so cute it's hard to choose...
On April 28th at 2pm Joan Hicks (Tahoma) and Penny Tyler (Tupence) will be returning to Wags Ranch to present a seminar on Kid Care & Selection.
Penny and Joan have over 40 years experience between them raising and showing Nigerian Dwarf dairy goats. Additionally Penny was a judge for 10 year and also helped to write the breed standard.
They will be sharing their knowledge on what to look for when selecting a kid to purchase or retain based on what your goals for your herd are. They will also be available to evaluate a kid or two if you would like to bring them to the seminar. (For the sake of bio-security all kids brought will need to remain contained except when being examined.) They will also share their experience on raising healthy kids.
The cost is $5 per person
Kid evaluation $5 per kid with a limit of two
If you plan to attend an RSVP is greatly appreciated.

Hi I am not able to attend your seminar, but I do have some questions on bottle feeding and what kind of grain to feed a young nigerian dwarf doeling. I have an 8 week old doeling who I am feeding goats milk bought from a local farm. She is doing well on it and has not yet started to wean from two 8oz bottles a day. How old is to old to keep bottle feeding her? she does eat orchard grass hay and alfalfa pellets and a sweet feed grain mix but does not seem to care for everything that is in that mix. she has had pasture browse also and a peanuts and sunflower seeds when she eats around where the bird feeders are. She is very active and full of energy. she is almost crazy when it gets to be around 8pm when she gets her bottle and in the morning she crys for her bottle. I have read many conflicting ages. 8 weeks seems to be the norm, but then I have read dam raised kids will nurse for 3 or 4 months + i dont mind feeding her that long.
