Evaluating the Health of Your Dairy Goat

July 31 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Baby goats in coats

First, we’ll learn what a healthy dairy goat looks like. We’ll talk about helpful tools for evaluation (ie. thermometer, FAMACHA chart, etc.) and how to use them. We’ll also learn what is normal for a goat in terms of temperature, respiration, heart rate, coat/skin, hooves, etc. And finally, we’ll learn some of the more common signs of a sick goat and what to do if our goat is not well. Register by July 24.

Youth ages 9 & up; open to Maine youth.
