BB VERY EASILY kidded quads, 1 buckling got stuck in his sack before I could get to him. 3 GORGEOUS lovely doe kids are alive & healthy. All four kids were nice and big, equally sized. She has plenty of milk, no issues at all, got some colostrum/milk 24hrs after kidding to put in the freezer. BB is EXTREMELY attentive & an EXCELLENT mother keeping the kids close and spotless clean at all times.
Purchased new Kidding Camera/Barn Monitoring system: Reolink PoE 4MP HD Indoor/Outdoor Surveillance Camera, Night Vision/Audion/Remote Access/Motion Detection. RLC-410 $54.99 Amazon (purchased 1 to start, but will immediately buy more after seeing how great these are and how easy it is to setup!) Link to the ReoLink products website: https://reolink.com/product/rlc-410/ Purchased CAT6 (GET ROUND CABLES/NOT FLAT CABLES!) PoE cabling 150ft to milkroom plus multiple 5-7ft sections for connections between Switch & Camera's. About $35 for all the cabling Purchased NetGear 5-Port Gigabit Ethernet Switch (GS305P), installed in the milk, via 150ft CAT6 cable from home to barn. $59.99 SUPER EASY SETUP!!! Just plugged in the CAT6 from my router to the NetGear switch, from the NetGear Switch to the ReoLink Camera, downloaded the Reolink App on my iphone and setup an account. Poof everything works GREAT!! Plus it has some seriously awesome night vision! I forgot to turn on the lights the first night, but when I checked the camera feed it was great! No additional like was necessary! Pic is nice and clear and I can tell every animal even in the pitch black! * NOTE: REMOVE THE MOTION DETECTION because it seriously screeches out alarms like crazy and send notices!! Ugh! For some reason I do have to unclick the audio Mute every time I check it on my phone. Not sure why??

Manny in w/all the mature doe's 1/19/2019 through 2/5/2019 UltraBoss on everyone including bucks, youngsters, and mature doe's 1/19/2019 Blood draws for annual disease testing and preg checks on mature doe's (all except Sereni, Maggie, Polly, CoCo, Psycho, & Melody since they weren't 28 days past breeding yet)
Dosage depends on which Cydectin you were given as there are four different products on the market and each has a different amount of moxidectin in it: Cydectin sheep drench has only 1 mg/kg moxidectin in it and has to be dosed at 25 ccs per 100 lbs to be effective; next is the Cydectin Pour-On containing 5 mg/kg moxidectin and a dosage of 5 ccs per 100 lbs; third on the list is Cydectin injectable that contains 10 mg/kg moxidectin and is dosed at 2.5 ccs per 100 lbs; and last but not least (actually the strongest formulation) is Quest Horse dewormer gel with a strength of 20 mg/kg moxidectin and a dose of 1.25 ccs per 100 lbs.
We have used three of the four types of Cydectin for many years and it continues to work well on our goats. We have given it orally, regardless of whether it's a pour-on, injectable or oral gel, but we only use when needed according to fecal exam results. We have never used the Cydectin Sheep Drench as it requires such a large dose to be effective it seems cost prohibitive.
The manufacturer's insert reads, "When used according to label directions, neither a pre-slaughter drug withdrawal period nor a milk discard time are required. Meat and milk from cattle treated with CYDECTIN (moxidectin) Pour-On may be used for human consumption at any time following treatment." However, "according to label directions" is as a pour-on for cattle, so there is no published information specific to withdrawal times when given orally to dairy goats.
