When things get busy on the farm, keeping track of everyone’s needs can really get away from you. Tracking hoof trims, deworming, milking, breeding and more can get overwhelming. Did you know that keeping animal records written down in one place can make it all so much easier?
If you are like me, then you have trouble remembering all of these details correctly. You are also like me if you are serious about taking great care of your goats and making a profitable small business out of your herd.

Well-maintained goats are healthy goats. A lot of herds need to be sure they’re well supplemented with copper and selenium on a regular basis. Knowing when a goat was bred can help you track kidding dates. Keeping good records can save you a lot of time and aggravation when trying to manage your herd. Good health and breeding records are also great to have available for a new owner if you’re selling a goat.
