Spring-Time is Lice-Time | Dairy Herd Improvement Program How to Make Feta | No Vet. OK, You Can Do This
Flowers are blooming, birds are singing, and in Georgia, a blanket of yellow pollen covers everything. SPRING IS HERE! Time to get outside, start working in the garden, check the chicken coops for more eggs, and enjoy all those baby goats. We hope you enjoy every wonderful day.

Spring-Time is Lice-Time
Yes, it is that time of year again. The time of year when the baby birds start chirping, the grass starts turning green and yes, the time for de-licing your goats. Before anyone faints from the shock of what I just said and runs to take a bath, let’s get the FACTS. Read More »
Dairy Herd Improvement Program
The Dairy Herd Improvement program is sometimes referred to as DHI, DHIA, or DHIR. This valuable tool helps evaluate the progress of your herd’s milk production. You can set goals for your herd so your breeding program has clear direction and a measure of your progress over time and earn permanent dairy stars (those little symbols you often see after the names of registered dairy goats) for all the hard work you’re already doing. DHI is also fairly inexpensive, useful, and exciting! Read More »
How to Make Feta
It is easy to make feta cheese at home that tastes simply wonderful! It is great served in big chunks on a salad platter, scattered over pasta or pizza, crumbled up with fresh tomatoes and sprinkled with olive oil, or cubed by itself as a little appetizer.  It is one of our favorites and we would like to help you make feta for your home as well. Read More »
No Vet? OK, You Can Do This 
 If you’re like me, you don’t have a veterinarian available that will treat goats. You are going to have to take care of them all on your own without any professional help. Don’t fret! This is not the end of the world. Between other goat owners and the Internet there are plenty of tools to help you know what you need to do.   Read More »
