I LOVE the blonde hair!!!
Kelly Fox

what do you give when you see dandruff?
Gary Weesner
33:50
Do you comb each goat only once? I seem to have some goats that require a second combing about a week after the first.

What were the injections? Could you spell them?
Cameron
34:40
What type or brand of mental s is everyone feeding?

Minerals
Danielle Fowler
34:51
@ DHF Dectomax was the cattle dewormer injection she mentioned
Erin
35:04
Jane that was a great video and great impromptu voice over! What is an average volume of cashmere to expect to store per goat? a couple 2 gallon bags? (I don't have goats, yet!)
Cameron
35:17
Please make sure you check with your vet for proper dosage

How do you use the fiber testing results in your breeding decisions?
Danielle James Choiniere
38:12
Speaking of bucks, do you do anything special to comb or manage them against their masculine tendencies?
Heather
39:13
Do you worry about guard hairs in the Fiber?
Cameron
39:54
I have a buck that produces 16 oz every year so it really depends on what your breeding program is trying to accomplish. Genetics is the back bone to a healthy program overall

I’m in Florida.. can I be successful with fiber in our heat & humidity?
Cameron
41:07
Do you see a difference in the color of fiber and when they drop their fleece and the testing results?
Erin Percival Carter (she/her)
43:08
Is there some additional context that we should have for interpreting results from the A&M lab? I’ve heard it hinted at that the results are different from what Y&M produced but I’m not sure exactly how. This was our first year getting our herd all tested and I’m trying to interpret the results by comparing to results I can see posted on the registry page…but if there’s some systematic difference, it would be nice to know how I should adjust my interpretation.
Erin Percival Carter (she/her)
49:03
So in the meantime, should we assume that our results are off in any systematic way?
Cameron
49:17
I think it would be very helpful to have a session on how to read your results!
Cameron
49:40
I’ve had a buck hold his one time until june
Erin Percival Carter (she/her)
50:07

Should we consider culling goats that hang on to their cashmere?
rosederbyshire
51:29
Do you have any tips for dehiring a fleece by hand?
Erin
52:57
Could you talk a little more about storing fiber with cedar and if that oil or wood box?
Deborah Niemann
54:00
We used to show dairy goats, and we would bathe our bucks before clipping for show. Would that work?
Dough Haven Farm
54:03
We had to shear the sticky

Danielle Fowler

we use anti-mating aprons. not because I trust them to not mate does, but because it keeps the urine off them. It was a tip from another CGA member that we love
Allysse S
55:19
Tips for keeping the static down while brushing?
Erin
55:45
Thank you!
Deborah Niemann

I was talking about harvesting the fiber.
Deborah Niemann
58:47
bathing before combing, if you just want to use the fiber or sell it.
Pam Marshall
59:56
I use a downey sheet seems to help
Deborah Niemann
01:01:48
Can we get Jane’s contact info if we have questions later?
Danielle James Choiniere
01:03:02
Quickie here: do you train goats to stand still for long periods of time? Or break it up in sessions?
rosederbyshire
01:03:17
Ella is itching to test out the feel of the fiber washed on or washed off the goat… now she just needs a goat who enjoys a bath….
