July 21 - Day 42

On July 21, the goats were handled to determine their FAMACHA© and body condition scores. Body condition scores remained virtually unchanged from July 7. They ranged from 2.0 to 3.5 and averaged 2.26. FAMACHA© scores ranged from 1 to 4 and averaged 2.66 compared to 2.69 on July 7. Only one goat required deworming. Its FAMACHA© score was 4.
