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!
