Homemade "cures" for goats and sheep

Many sheep and goat owners are seeking more natural and less expensive methods to treat their livestock. Clear Creek Farms has published a list of Homemade Cures (Recipes) for goats on their web site.

For example, a "Nutri-drench" type supplement can be made from 1 part corn oil (not canola or vegetable oil), 1 part molasses, and 1 part corn syrup.

There is no guarantee that homemade "cures" will work or be as effective as traditional drug-based therapies or commercial products. The advice of a large animal veterinarian or experienced producer should be sought when livestock are not responding to treatment.
