This video shows how to divide a recipe for herbal dose balls
into individual 1-1/2 teaspoon doses.
Feel free to contact me with any questions.
(It's pretty exciting gals! LOL)
The ingredients are listed on the sheet above. The herbs in this formula are all mixed in equal parts by weight except for chaparral, nettle, and pumpkin seed which are a half part each. So if you are using 1 ounce as "1 part," then the chaparral, nettle, and pumpkin seed would be 1/2 ounce (1/2 part) added to your recipe batch.

I suggest using the dose ball method initially so that you know how to dose individual goats as needed. Once individual dosing is working well for you, then dosing in tea form is another good option. Be sure to always monitor your goats condition and have stool samples run occasionally for parasite testing.
Drenching herbal doses is a good option especially if you have a sick goat or one that absolutely refused to eat dose balls. NOTE: I've always been able to convince my goats to eat dose balls and, once convinced, they'll almost knock me over for them. ;)
Drench using a 35 mg syringe without the needle or use a drenching syringe like the one in this link: https://www.amazon.com/Ardes-20Ml-Syringe-Dosenut-Drencher/dp/B01BH4BEL6/ref=sr_1_2?crid=2MW63XWGXGYPZ&keywords=drench+gun+for+goats&qid=1583974433&sprefix=drench+gun%2Caps%2C242&sr=8-2
Administering the herbs by top dressing grain is also an option but I have not used this method.
~I sell my herbal mixes for $25 for 16 ounces. I also have 16 oz bags of slippery elm for $28.
If you'd like to mix your own, here are some options for purchasing bulk herbs:
~Starwest Botanicals - If you have a business and can apply for a wholesale account then they ship free to Alaska when you purchase $400 or more.

NOTE: THIS INFORMATION IS PROVIDED SPECIFICALLY FOR THE USE OF CUSTOMERS WHO HAVE PURCHASED GOATS FROM ME. I AM HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE. PLEASE FEEL FREE TO CONTACT ME AS QUESTIONS ARISE. ALSO, NOTE THAT I AM A GOAT OWNER AND I AM SHARING MY EXPERIENCE WITH YOU. I AM NOT A VET OR AN HERBALIST. I DO ENJOY HERBAL SUPPORTS TO MANAGE PARASITES ON MY FARM. CHEMICAL DEWORMERS ARE ALSO A GOOD OPTION, BUT I AM NOT EXPERIENCED IN USING THEM. I SUGGEST HAVING VET SUPPORT WHEN USING CHEMICAL DEWORMERS. (IT'S GREAT TO HAVE VET SUPPORT ANYWAY.) THE MAIN THING IS HAVING HEALTHY GOATS!
