Goat Talk with the Goat Doc


More Goat Talk about the whole passive transfer of maternal immunity for our goat kids coming at you in this episode. We talked about the actual amazing importance and complexity to the seemingly simple system of goat kids drinking colostrum in the first 24 hours of their lives in Part 1, so in Part 2, I go into what problems can arise from the failure of passive transfer (FPT), sequelae of FPT, and goat and human behaviors that can cause FPT to be a problem.
