We got the final results from the blood tests on the main herd (goat people call it a 'trip' -- but I am originally a cow person). Everyone came back great! We are getting ready to vaccinate the preggers that are closest to kidding. We also have to buy a microscope so we can do fecals to determine if we need to de-worm or not. Floating poop and looking for worm eggs is what I will actually be doing. Fun, fun, fun. I will have to thank Mr. Thibedeau for teaching me this stuff in high school. I am really going to be using my skills.Aren't the puppies growing fast? Luna is very dominant and the boys have wonderful manners. I just have to stay ahead of the head-strong girl. I have only had one challenge when she was young and she has been good since then. These are my co-workers. I love my job.
- Crow's Dairy
- Buckeye, AZ, United States
- Both my husband, Wendell, and I are from AZ dairy families. We met in high school, later married and started a cow dairy of our own. We have been married for 29 years and have four children. We raised them on the farm located at 10505 W. Broadway. Don't try to find it now because it has been demolished. We sold that dairy in 2006 and moved to Buckeye. We are now starting another dairy business -- this time with Nubian goats. Our daughter, Mary, and her husband, Erik, are our partners. Our other children Aaron (Diana), Charlotte & David are involved as often as their busy lives allow. We are blessed with family and friends that support our new direction. Thanks to all of you that have helped with this labor of love.
