I’m not sure why, but lately, I have been involved in several conversations about vaccinating goats. For the past several years, I have used Calvary 9. It covers C.D. & T as well as several other diseases. The best part of it, it doesn’t leave that knot. I give this to every kid at about 2 weeks of age and then again at 6-8 weeks. Every doe and buck gets a dose of this around the first of July.
We also use a Purina wind & rain mineral with CTC. Yes, you are supposed to have a script to purchase it. Some bought enough before these rules came into effect. We haven’t had many abortion problems since we started using this over a decade ago. Yes, you could give the bred does a dose of LA200 or LA300 every month or so. Now I don’t know about you, but the less that I catch a female goat and give her a shot, the better my attitude is.
Speaking of getting a vaccination shot. Yeah, I’m out on getting the old covid vaccine. The only thing I did with any of that stuff was buy some Moderna stock and then sold it when it moved up. I don’t care if you get the vaccine. That is your business. I have never had a flu vaccination and I have only had the flu twice in the past couple of decades. I’ll take my chances. I mean really, something is eventually going to kill me. I didn’t plan on making it this long. If the covid gets me, oh well. Sure, I would rather pass while being smothered by a bunch of smoking hot strippers.
Well, let’s be real. Unfortunately, I’ve got a way better chance of the rona getting me. And if there was a vaccine to prevent being smothered by smoking hot strippers, I wouldn’t take that vaccine either. I’m not anti-vaccinations. I just don’t need it nor want it. I’m real sure that my “proper” diet keeps my immune system ramped up. Hey, I did eat a salad last night. Along with one of those melt-in-your-mouth badass croissants at Charleston’s.
I’m looking forward to a full day of clipping does here at THE OK Youth Expo. Big fun!
