What’s In My Goat Medicine Cart

IMG_0761

I’ll be honest, I am super proud of this little cart. I put it together less than a year ago and just since then, it’s helped in more emergencies than I can keep track of (mostly for friends’ and neighbors’ goats). People have asked me what I like to have on hand, so I’ve finally made a list. It’s constantly evolving, but this is what is in here now. The cart itself was purchased from Amazon (but be warned, they have increased the price). I keep the cart next to milking room, in the area reserved for kidding and emergencies. Feel free to comment if you have questions about the supplies.
