With the hope to help other livestock owners we have videoed and are uploading a few videos of the routine health maintenance checks we do every month on our different livestock species.
Monthly we check:
*Body condition scoring, gotta get your hands on them (pic1)
*FAMACHA score (pic2)
*Tells us if animal is anemic
*Anemia points to possible parasite issue or MH
*We perform fecal and deworm with appropriate drug (pic3)
*Or we treat for the “silent killer” Mycoplasma (MH)
*Give injectable ivermectin (pic4) to prevent M-worm EVERY 30 days!
