Class Experience

Students will learn the basics to prepare them for responsible herd planning and goat husbandry, as well as expose them to some realities of goat kidding in a safe and non-urgent environment.
I am not a veterinarian, but worked for years as a veterinary assistant. Additionally, I have attended several goat births (and narrowly missed a few) on our own farm. My family has a small goat herd with new kids born every year. We have a small business making and selling soap with our extra goat milk.
Session One: Talk about your goat herd or put together your ideal herd. Include breeds you have or would use and your reasoning behind your choices.

Session Two: Design your own birthing kit and talk about your birthing preparations, watch kidding video (25m)

Session three: Post video reactions to classroom, talk about any experiences you may have with live births

Session four: Home experiment and reflection questions
For final experiment, students will need a single disposable glove.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
****Parental advisory: This class talks about sexual reproduction of goats and includes a (brief, wide-shot) video of goats mating and a (graphic, close up) video of a goat laboring and giving birth. Discretion is advised.****

**I am not a veterinarian and information contained in this course is designed for general informational purposes only. For specific medical advice or in the event of a goat emergency, please consult a veterinarian.**
