    It's hard but we all learn from mistakes. It's a tough pill to swallow. I really hope your nightmares go away about your animals. That was sad to hear. I'd probably end up losing all my animals, you at least have bred them and they're having offspring and you're helping them. So don't be so hard on yourself. You're doing the best you can with the info you have and you're seeking out to learn what you can do next time.

    Wow. I see your dilemma about worming. Do goats get worms more if they're more anemic? Since I've had nursing, I'm wondering about cross contamination. Goats pooh anywhere, so putting goats in groups of course they're going to step in the pooh and spread the pooh that has the bacteria or the resistant worms and germs. Seems good practice would be to either shovel up the pooh and cover with straw immediately or layer more straw on top to expose a new clean surface for them to lay in to sleep, or eat. And cleaning/disinfecting their water and feed buckets. Because aren't worms contagious? Interesting that you mentioned your goats didn't have this problem in your other place. So why not just bring in gravel and rocks into their paddock and not let them be on grass that sounds like the larvae gets eaten and digested then takes over the health of your goats. The front of your barn is muddy, so why not bring gravel in right there to counter water problems plus keep the goats near the barn for bad storms? Hope it all works out for you guys !!

    You're drinking the kids colostrom which protects newborns from fatal disease. It's not really milk....the flavor will be "off". Second...your not washing your hands or the udder...and drinking it raw. You are going to potentially sicken your small children. As a Pediatric ICU RN I have seen it multiple times, they are incredibly susceptible to infections from dirty milk. If you're going to drink it raw be vigorously CLEAN in your milking process. Anything less is insanity.

  • Paige Banks

    You guys did great, Luna did fabulous! Can I suggest straw bedding after delivery? It helps the newborns get better footing and traction on concreate/mattress flooring and keeps their body temp more stable. It's also great carbon for the compost heap afterwards! Beautiful baby!

    You better believe it the Billy does use his horns for dominance and control. I never want a goat with horns again. I just sold a very good Billy whom attacked me four times. Last two was almost the end for me. I saw stars when my head hit the ground. Then he threw me down. I grabbed hold of his horns the last time as he tried to horn me and held on. Yes, they get their head through the fence. I have a young Doe does that. I hate to Disbud but will from now on. .

Your baby is a doll baby too. First time I've watched, very down to earth. I subscribed and rang your bell. Good luck if Luna delivers soon!!

  • Kyoshiro Iwazumi

    A lot of people in this comment don't know how aging works.

    • Kyoshiro Iwazumi
      Kyoshiro Iwazumi 6 hours ago

      @Bert Clayton 3 to 4 days? The purpose of aging is to start breaking down protein without initiating oxidation or severe oxidation and also induces moisture loss (water within the cells that are breaking down). Don't think 3 to 4 days is adequate for aging at least a whole animal. 39 to 42 degrees is also a bit high, that's the range when oxidation though slow, occurs for animal protein. You want to minimize mold growth but it could depend on how the animal is dressed and the temperature. There seem to be thicker growth in the video, I forgot how long they have been aging it but it could be just due to the age or temperature variation. You dress the meat afterwards. but yeah you just shave off the outer later. You'd still have majority of the meat aside from the shrinkage due to moisture loss and the slight shaving to dress off the outer layer. I think that's why the guy didn't skin the animal to prevent mold growth on the outer part of the animal and concentrated the growth in the internal cavity where many are closer to the bone so he didnt have to shave off too much off the animal.

    • Bert Clayton

      I'm one of them. We would hang cow and hogs about 3 days for one maybe 4 for another, which completely chilled makes it easy to break down into sections, roasts, steaks, ground etc. So could you tell me about aging? I had a hard time understanding. I take it you hang a deer at 39-42 degrees, mold starts, but we want like a 1/4", maybe 1/2" build up of mold. T hats all I gathered. Do you fillet the mold off the meat? Where you'd still have your briskets?

    Kay I have to say you vocalize how all my farm births are for me. I also have that push and pull of when do I step in. I only raise goats but in over 20 births I can count on one hand the number I have assisted with. That anxiousness is always there for my first timers. You are never really sure how they will react. Once itโ€™s done though pat yourself on the back you made it through and it worked out. Experience is always earned and given. Austin great job keeping calm which is half the battle and being the muscle. Congrats you guys on a new little one.

Man, thnx for sharing I was on the edge of my seat and wish I were right there in the stall with you both. I wanted my hands in it too. I was an RN for almost 20yrs and the reason I went into nursing was because I had such wonderful home births with my last two kids that I wanted to be a midwife, altho after consulting with my midwife and doing a lil research decided against delivering babies, to many law suits now days, when people don't get what they expect or things go awry, they want to blame someone. Thnx for sharing y'll rok!! congrats on your heifer I know that is what you really wanted. a2a2 yahoo! good for you. Congratulations!!
