    Okay, I'm trying to get into better management. Soooo. I finally goat a new bottle of CD&T I have my first doe due around the 24th or 26, and several then and a week or so later. Is it too late to give these girls CD&T What's the latest you can give it before they kid? If you don't give it to them before they kid is it okay to give it to them the day or day after they kid?

    Thanks

    When did have their last CDT? You're only boosting their immunity - if they've had a CDT in the past year, they will still pass "some" immunity on to their kids. At this point, I'd probably do it - it won't hurt - and be sure to give the kids a tetanus shot when they're disbudded, and a CDT at about 21 days.
