Dawson Gap Herd Management

Kids are dam raised on our farm and constantly handle by our 6 children making them very friendly.  They are disbudded, naturally dewormed, weaned at 8-10 weeks, and ready to go to their new homes.

We follow many practices recommended in Pat Colby’s book, “Natural Goat Care” and have greatly benefitted from the information found on the Fiasco Farm website.  We use herbal and natural remedies first and drugs only when needed. We strive to have vibrant, healthy Nigerian Dwarf goats by feeding high quality Alfahay, Dawson Gap Naturals goat feed, and rotating paddocks & pasture so they can browse as God intended.  Goats require high copper in their diet so they always have access to our Dawson Gap Custom Goat mineral formulated by Fertrell. We also keep kelp, baking soda, and loose salt available free choice.

In 2020 our adult herd tested negative for CAE & Johne’s. Our herd tested negative for CL in 2018. Kids that we retain are tested once they are a year old.
