One I know of is Safeguard. I have also used Ivomec on my goats with no problems.

Patty, I have beef cattle I use pour on Ivomek in the summer for worming as well as to kill flies and mites which are always bad in the summer time. IN the fall I use the wormer that the cows lick believe its called lick wormer. The reason for this is, because they will not get immume to either one. As for goats and sheep I think you can use it on them you can ask at feed store and they can tell you more. dave

Hi Patty,

I get my herbal wormer for my goats from 7mFarm and Herbals, PO Box 40, Mona Utah, 84645, Phone # 435-623-5798. It says it is good for cows and horses too. My friend got an herbal wormer from Hoegger's. Sorry, I don't know their address. Herbal wormers are supposed to be very safe, and effective according to 7m's Web site, which is very informative. Go to 7mFarm.com. (This is my first year with goats.) Yours, Sue Stern

Patty, I use Hoegger Supply herbal wormer for my goats. They do real well with it. I never thought to use it on my cows,am going to try it. Their address :P.O. Box 331, Fayetteville,GA 30214 (770-461-7334) I think they are very reasonably priced. They also profess to be believers in Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I give them as much business as I need. Another big plus--You can call and get any advice on goats, they have been very helpful, especially when I first got started years ago. Give them a try or at least a call. Debbi
