I have chosen to raise my goats as naturally as possible. I will not be giving vaccinations, my goats are wormed using herbal dewormers and essential oils. I strive to treat any issues herbally whenever possible. All babies will be disbudded, unless paid for at birth and arrangements made to leave horns.
My does and doelings are fed 2nd or 3rd cutting alfalfa along with a bit of grain. My milkers get non-gmo locally grow and ground grain daily on the milk stand and the rest get 1/4-1/2 c. in the morning with their mineral and kelp. Updated 2019: currently all goats are getting unlimited quality grass hay along with non-gmo alfalfa pellets. So far this is working well and a lot less waste. They have free choice minerals as well.
The bucks get a good quality grass hay and their minerals.
I do copper bolus twice a year. Other herbs are given as needed.
Apple Cider Vinegar is added to the goats water buckets when I remember.

DWormA and GI soother are the 2 main products I use for worming and cocci
I currently use Young Living essential oils in their water trough for worming unless I see problem with a specific goat and then I will treat individually with the products above. I use oregano and orange. Please only use quality tested essential oils for internal use.
I trim all the goats hooves at least once a month.
