Kids on Pasture

G105 Peg Leg moved her kids out to pasture with her when they were 3 days old. It’s quite a journey down to this pasture but the kids, G110 Stormy and G111 are up to the task. 

  

We are waiting for more kids to drop any day now but it has been great to have time to study G105 Peg Leg in such depth. Part of that study has been weighing the kids daily, obviously we won’t do this for all the kids but the data is interesting and valuable. As of right now the doeling G110 Stormy is up 44% from her birthweight. The buckling is up 40% from his birth weight. These measurements are as of 4 days of age. 

Fresh Grass

At the farm we rotate pastures intensively to stay ahead of parasites. In this picture you see the girls enjoying a fresh pasture we call the West Triangle. They will spend 3 days here until moving to the next pasture which is larger and therefore has a longer grazing period. 

  

Our goal is to move to another pasture  before 6 days has passed because it is after that amount of time that the Barber Pole worm larva that they shed in their feces become infective to the goats. We try to let each pasture rest at least 22 days as the life cycle of the Barber Pole worm is 21 days. In a perfect world we would let each pasture rest 35-45 days but we work with what we have for now.
