Herbal (1)-Conventional (10) 1-10 Scale: 2
We do not routinely deworm with chemicals. We provide herbal preventatives and have implemented rotational grazing between our goat and bird flocks. We just transitioned to a mineral buffet to see if that helps with the few parasites we've seen (lice and coccidia). We regularly check FAMACHA scores on goats and run fecals for everyone. If we do see a high worm or parasite load, we first try a treatment dose of herbal remedies. If those don't seem to have an effect and we fear that an animal's life is at risk, we move to conventional treatment for that animal.
