    Gonna give this a try on a goat that wont give it up... http://www.easywean.com.au/sheep.htm think this should do it as she is stubborn and I dont want to separate her by herself...got some ordered ...might have some extras to sell to maybe...

    My DH uses those on his calves when they get stubborn. We had a weanling that went back to mamma after being seperated for 3 months!

    Seperate her out, but within site of the others.

    I have seen/known meany farmers who have used these or simalar items...They have all said good things about them...
    They do not harm the animal---it's not a nose ring...it's like a fake earring/clip on earring....it' puts a slight pressure on the animals nose/muzzle when they try to nurse...The mother doesn't seem bothered by it either...
    Now again, I said I know farmers who have used them...i have never used them on any of our animals...haven't needed to!!!

    Wow, I wondered if they made these for sheep/goats.

    We have tried them on cattle. In the end, I think its easier to wean traditionally. We've found with the cattle, on the majority of calves it works, but there are always a few that manage to figure out how to suck without sticking the cow with the prongs. And we had a few manage to remove them.

    having said that, I know people that use them routinely without any problems at all
