I am having parasite problems with my Ibex I have never had before. Have lost 3 kids in the last month and more are sick. Too small and young to dart and too wild to catch easily. They are getting a stomach worm that ivomec and safeguard will not kill. Fixed up a new way to try to catch them but it is raining again this morning. Wonder how this excessive wet and all the vegetation is going to affect the WT. Have already seem some older does that looked wormy.

I wonder about that too. Plus putting fawns on higher ground/concentrated subjecting them to more predation.

Whitetail will probably fare better than a "import", or non-indigenous animal, at least that is what I would think. This has happened in the past and whitetail survived.

Don, hope you figure out a treatment, ivermectin is usually pretty reliable on parasites.

Went to the vet with a dead kid. He looked at a fecal sample and said that a lot of people who raise goats, Boer, Angora Milk etc. are having problems. He said the only thing they have found so far is Prohibit. A drench made for cattle and sheep. I caught 4 kids this morning and drenched them. Only 12 more kids to go. Not a good year so far. 16 kids alive and 11 have dead.

Yes sir, those numbers are tough. That's in the 40ish + % range of loss, enough to crumble most types of business. Hopefully the Prohibit is the silver bullet up

Don use Cydactin pour on in corn. I worm my mouflon and goats with it. One mark per animal over as much as they can eat in one feeding. Repeat in a week to be sure

Please explain. I feed a textured feed. Mix how much? Works good? They will eat the mix? Thanks I appreciate the help.

Very sorry to hear about your trouble Don the last time we this much rain we had worm trouble as well lost half of sable herd including the male before we could slow it down . We were able to feed a special wormer pellet. But the ranch had to dry out before it finally went away. Prayers bud.

Get the Cydactin pour on for cattle. The bottle has a separate tube om the side to measure the amount. Not sure if it is CC,s or ML but each increment is for 100 lbs beef. I figure 1 mark for each adult and a half for kids. I mix it in their feed bucket and don't worry about putting too much. Mine eat corn the best so that is what I mix it with. They don't always eat it on protien. Add diatoumatios earth to their regular feed will help too I do this constantly. I worm twice per year or if I hear one cough. It's easier if you can get them to eat out of your hand.
