Helping goat owners by translating the latest research into practical ideas that can be implemented on your goat farm.
Evaluation sheets are handed out at all courses that are held and collated feedback is given to the organizers. Ask for copies from similar courses that have been held. Feedback from recent Zoom training is also available.
Please use the Phone A Vet app downloadable from Google Play or the App Store. The Phone A Vet app allows you to upload pictures and videos and have an up to 15 minute video call with Sandra. This enables Sandra to speak with you while examining goats and their environment. Sandra then gets a fuller picture and can give the best advice.
When in the app and describing the problem in the ‘How can we help?’ box, also enter “request Dr Sandra Baxendell“.

"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!"
