"Many, many thanks for ongoing help and advice, given promptly and realistically. Our Goats thank you."

Field Days & Talks – I encourage goat clubs to arrange talks and hands on  goat husbandry training.  Often these are sold out in only a few days.  


Here is a post from the Townsville & District Goat Club Facebook page after they arranged for me to hold a FAMACHA course 

18  October 2016 "A huge (and belated, sorry) Thank You to everyone for the  FAMACHA course on the weekend! I got so much from the course and had  heaps of little questions that have been buzzing around my head  answered. Thanks Sandra for traveling all the way, and being patient  with my interruptions, and Brian for facilitating. I look forward to the  next session already, thank you!"

Submissions to Government re Veterinary Medicine for goats

Access to veterinary medicines by veterinarians and goat owners is severely restricted due to lack of residue data for goats. I have taken many opportunities to raise this issue in government reviews, even speaking direct to the Productivity Commissioners. Read my submissions below.
