They will have to be kept quite separate now so they are penned in a corner of the sheep house. Sfter a few days they'll be turned out to graze but in a separate field from the does. I don't want them to start suckiling again.
The next job is to label them with one ear tag and one pastern tag on a hind leg. Each tag has our unique herd number and a unique number for the goat. This is too ensure traceability after the last Foot and Mouth epidemic in 2001. Each animal must have two separate identifiers; tags or tag and pastern tag, or tag and tattoo. Its EU rules!
