In the video Ganesh explains how to give the goats de-worming drugs. De-worming is a big and important part of goat farming, as worms can make your goat sick and kill your goat, leading to losses. If the goats have good digestion, they will grow properly and be of benefit to their owner. De-worming process takes place every 3 months. The goats are given different medicines every 3 months which eliminate worms. The feeding area should be  empty on the day of de-worming. Goats should not be allowed to eat or drink anything for 2 hours after being given de-worming medicine. Goats with more worms should be tagged and given another dose of medicine 5 days later. He always gets good results from de-worming. Apart from medicine you must also follow vaccination. Rest is also good for goats.
