This morning session will be geared towards the newer herd owners. There will be a team of more veteran breeders to assist you with basic management and care.

New! First and only mastitis vaccine USDA approved for use in dairy and meat goats.
VIMCO® targets Staphylococcus aureus and CNS (Coagulase Negative Staphylococci), the bacteria most commonly associated with mastitis.
Implementation of a mastitis control program is an essential step in improving milk quality and preventing infection.
