Internal parasites are a part of the natural goat world. We can't eradicate them
as long as goats are on pasture. The goal is to maintain the parasites at a level
that will not produce any illness or economic loss. Remember, anytime the industry
relies on a single product or method of control, the worms will eventually adapt
and outwit us.
There are four basic tools that are available for the breeder to use in fighting
the internal parasites.
Understand the parasite’s life cycle and break it.
Drug Management to fight the parasites
Animal Management to help reduce the parasites in them.
Pasture Management to help minimize the main source of internal parasites in goats
The more of these you use together, the better your chances are for minimizing the
impact of internal parasites on your herd and improving your profits..
