Source for Milk Goiter Information- Goat Biology

Well, whoever said raising kids was easy ought to try raising 21 at the same time! Our babies are eight weeks old and some of them have swollen throats. To our relief what we thought might be a contagious disease turned out to be a natural part of the growth process!

My time is very limited or I would write more. The above source was very good explaining this. I want to get some pictures of our bubble necked babies so other new "Moms and Dads" don't freak out the way we did when our "kids" came down with a case of swollen throats. Not all the kids have this either. Our purebred Nubian buck has the worst case, which is normal for the breed according the article above. Who would have ever guessed?
