Hello, tell me where you can buy a sheep milk substitute? (Natalia)
Natalia, hello. You know, before it could be bought in a regular vet pharmacy, especially in those that specialize in farms. But now it is becoming more and more difficult to find it, so many people manage with what it is. Heard that give ZTsM Biolak 12% and Spectolact 12%, but these mixtures often cause diarrhea in babies. More good reviews at Vitalaks 16 where add flaxseed. I personally had the experience of feeding two lambs with regular powdered milk for children. Lucky - everything was successful. The proportions are the same 1 to 9. But here from time to time, it is difficult to say for sure that this will suit all kids.
Tell me, please, I bought a goat for myself in February of this year, she had her first lamb at 12/28/15, as the goat did not take her to the next village on November 9, but she didn’t know whether she was covered or not. Now there is a goat, standing nearby, but through the partition from it, it was not allowed to it, and so it is the third day that it simply does not give milk, the diet of feeding and maintenance has not changed, so now I can’t understand what could have happened.

Dmitry, hello. Most likely the last time your goat did not become covered, since even with the quality of its milk it could not disappear. I believe that, being near the goat, she just feels him and “walks”. This may be a reaction to the male and the hunt period. Try to let them out together. In any case, if the goat does not walk, then she will not let the male to her. If you let me, then you can carry out the mating. Successes.
