    OK... sooo could I give the 2nd dose of Lysigin after they are in with the buck for breeding or must I really wait.

    With a new baby & my mom visiting breeding crept up on me. I gave the 1st dose of Lysigin on Wed. I really wanted to start breeding June 1st... BUT I'd more like to do the *right thing*.

    Well as I see it, you have two options.. you could wait and breed after the 11th, giving them their 2nd round or put 'em in with the buck on the first and don't. If Vicki say's "Not" to do/give anything the first 50 days after breeding, I'd heed her warnings. :biggrin

    I just don't do anything the first 50 days of pregnancy, but that doesn't mean a vaccination can hurt the pregnancy, we don't know. But other than the first 50 days of pregnancy, no vaccine, worming etc., is going to harm the fetus. There is also no milk withdrawal on vaccination. I do try to time giving my girls I keep their Lysigin 4 weeks before and then again the weekend before (21 day after the first shot) the buck is going in the pen or they will be bred that month.

    Do make sure you watch your technique on vaccinations of bred does. It's not the time to put an armpit vaccination into a heavy bred doe who is then to sore to walk around and get exercise.

    Ya'll are already breeding does? Fall milk? Vicki

    Funny story while I was away showing husband sold almost a freezer full of milk, soap, all the honey I had jarred and all the eggs for the week. He told me we ought to be milking more goats :) WE! He did go out and clean my vacume pump for me, since I had sucked a bucket of bleach water into it milking at 4 am :) Vicki

    Chores? Not one soul on this place knows how to run the milking machine but me. I bet my grandson who is only 2 would be helpful, he at last knows what ends the inflations go on :) Vicki
