Diarrhea in goat kids Caused by Bacteria and viruses

<
diarrhea in goat kids

There are many factors that contribute to mortality in neonatal kids. Diarrhea in goat kid is the single major cause of death in neonatal kids. Diarrhea in animal caused by Bacteria (Escherichia coli, salmonella, clostridium perfringens, Yersinia), Virus ( Rotavirus, Coronavirus, adenovirus, Herpes virus, Morbillivirus) and Parasites ( Cryptosporidium, Eimeria, Entamoeba, Giardia, Strongyloides, Trichostronylus, Amphistomes)

The four major causes of Diarrhea in the kids during the first month of life are Colibacillosis, rotavirus infection,  salmonellosis, and cryptosporidiosis. Out of them, colibacillosis (E Coli scours) is the most common bacterial diarrhea while in the viral agent’s Rotavirus is the most common. 

Cryptosporidium is the main culprit in the parasitic agent associated with diarrhea in neonatal kids.

Despite improvements in management practices and prevention treatment strategies, diarrhea is still the most common and the most costly disease in goats, affecting neonatal small ruminants.

Indiscriminate use of antibiotics is making bacterial agents resistant to common antibiotics. Apart from antibiotic resistance, there is little or no time to figure out acute forms of colibacillosis as well as rotavirus infection and to take steps to save the kids.

3 factors of Diarrhea in newborn goat kid

#1 Kid Factor

Infectious disease and parasitic disease: colibacillosis (ETEC E Coli), PPR, salmonellosis, Pneumonia, Rotavirus, FMD, clostridium perfringens, contagious ecthyma, Tetanus, cryptosporidium parvum, coccidiosis, Moniziasis.

Non-infectious cause: Low Birth weight, premature birth, Hypothermia, and hypoglycemia syndrome, trace element deficiencies (Cu, Iodine, Se)

#2 Mother factor

Low milk production syndrome associated with metabolic disease (Hypocalcaemia, pregnancy toxaemia), Mastitis etc.

#3 Management Factor

Low colostrum or milk feeding, sanitation and hygiene, rearing practices, shelter management,  Judicious and timely prophylactic measures, breeding management, Nutrition and feeding practices, etc.

Neonatal mortality is vital to the economic goat husbandry and is critical for the fast growth of small ruminants in the world. Several studies have shown that on an average 20% of the kids are lost every year. Based on this mortality rate, the estimated total deaths would be around 10-12 million of kids each year.

Diarrhea in goat kid by Colibacillosis

Diarrhea particularly during the first few weeks after birth is an important ailment that is responsible for high mortality in neonates of most animal species. 

Diarrhea is documented as a very frequent cause of kid mortality throughout the world. Colibacillosis is a disease of very young animals usually 2-10 days old. The bacterium Escherichia coli (E.coli) is an important causative agent. 

This is common inhabitants of the gastrointestinal tract in both non-pathogenic and pathogenic forms.  Pathogenic serotype, however, some of these are capable of gaining entrance to the body (septicemic from) through the intestinal wall, others remain in the intestinal tract and liberate a toxin which is absorbed by the body and cause generalized disease and diarrhea entheogenic form.

The common signs are anorexia, loss or decreased appetite, off feed, bloody stools, feces, hematochezia, ataxia, incoordination, staggering, falling, dehydration, fever, etc.

There are a number of Escherichia coli strains that have been identified and characterized in animals. 

Colibacillosis is managed by administration of antibiotics preferably both oral and systemic, rehydration therapy, prebiotic and probiotic therapy, hygienic drinking water supply, environmental sanitation, etc.

Diarrhea in goat kid by Salmonellosis

Most species of the genus salmonella are capable of producing diarrhea in goat kid but salmonella typhimurium is the most common serovar of the genus. In salmonellosis, the kids less than 1 week of age are more likely to die without clinical signs, whereas animals older than one week of age are more likely to have diarrhea. This can be damaged by antibiotics. The bacteria salmonella have thousands of serotypes and all can potentially cause diarrhea in animals.  Vaccination has not been thoroughly evaluated in sheep and goats.

Diarrhea in goat Kid by Cryptosporidiosis

cryptosporidiosis, caused by cryptosporidium parvum is primarily a disease of lambs and kids less than 30 days of age and is usually a milder disease than coccidiosis. Infective oocysts are passed in feces and are transmitted by oral ingestion. Duration of diarrhea in goats tends to be a few days longer than is seen in diarrhea caused by rotavirus, coronavirus, or enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli. 

Feces are yellow or pale, watery, and contain mucus. In most cases, diarrhea is self-limiting after several days. 

Paromycin sulfate  100 mg/kg for 11 days from the second day of age proves successful in preventing natural disease in a controlled clinical field trial in goat kids.

Diarrhea in Goat kid by Rotavirus and coronavirus gastroenteritis

Lambs and kids are infected with a group of B rotavirus, whereas most other animals and humans have infected with group A rotavirus.  This virus generally causes diarrhea in goat kids 2 to 14 days of age. 

Young animals become very depressed and dehydrated.  Treatment with supportive care. Vaccinating ewes and does with bovine rotavirus and coronavirus vaccine before they give birth will increase passive immunity. Generally, viruses tend to less a cause of diarrhea in lambs and kids than calves.

Diarrhea in Goat kid by clostridium perfringens

Enterotoxaemia can kill goats and sheep of all ages but usually kills only those that consume high levels of carbohydrates. Clostridium perfringens type D. one type of bacteria that causes enterotoxemia, is most prevalent associated with sudden death, occasional pushing and staggering, apparent blindness in growing kids.

Clostridium perfringens type C causes a type of enterotoxemia that usually is accompanied by bloody scours.Mortality may be high. It usually occurs among fast gaining kids during the first three weeks. Pregnant goats vaccinated three four weeks before kidding provide antibody protection in their milk.

Soda bicarbonate french is effective. For an outbreak, vaccinate with type D toxoid on day 1 and gain 12 -14 days later, de-worm and reduce grain until the vaccine takes effect. 

Final words

Prior vaccination and treatment is better than cure in case of diarrhea in goats kids. The colostrum feeding on time provides immunity and generates antibodies in kids. Sanitation around new born kids also plays a major role in neonatal diarrhea in kids, do all this thing we discussed above helps you manage the health and survival of goat kids.

In my opinion, without getting information about any type of business there is a big risk you can pass and you can fail but it is better to get training. Investment on your own to collect information is always worth it.

Generally, Goat farming training by the government is not that worth better to take the training from experienced Goat farm. generally, government officer that gives Goat farming training has no personal experience of rearing goats.

Indus Goat Farm is the member of Goat Spot Community. this community is the best community in the world where you get all about goat farming. This community has Both Paid and free membership.

Future scope of Goat farming or why you should enter in this Business?

The graph curve of goat farming is increasing. I have never seen any downfall in this business. The goat meat price is continuously increasing. India is the top exporter of goat and goat meat throughout the world. millions of goats sold at the Eid festival in India.

In my area, the price of goat meat is 550 Rs per Kg and I know it will touch 600 Rs per kg in the next year. You can expect the potential of this business. 

Generally, the goat starts to eat a little bit after one month and for a goat farmer, the cost spent on one goat after one month is around 10 to 12 rupees average per day. 

Goat farming MathsHow Much You can Earn?

If you reared one female goat for 14 months. Normally one goat Probably gives two kids in one gestation period(5 months). We raised goat and their kids.

We sold two kids in 6 months remaining 2 kids we raised for one year for sale on the Eid festival because we can get more price at this festival. 

Normally, The cost spent on goat feed for one goat is 12 rs per day.

(14 months=420 days, 5 months = 150 days, 1 year =  365 days)

1 Female for 14 months  – 1 x 420 x 12 = 5040 Rs

2 Kid for five months – 2 x 150 x 12 = 3400 Rs

2 Kid for 1 years – 2 x 365 x 12 = 8760 Rs

Total cost spent on feed =  17200 Rs

Now I have to sale all my goat’s kid then what money I will get

 2 kids, I sold in 6 months in 5000 rs = 10000

2 goat I sold in Eid festival in 15000rs = 30000

Total =40000

 the money I got in my hand is 40000

What I spent on feed is 17200

therefore 40000-17200 = 22800 rs

in this Training, the Indus Goat Farm also teaches you how can you earn more than that and the hidden principles of goat farming.

You earn 22800 and you have your female goat left in your farm. You can expect how much you can earn with 100 female goats. To check the project report of 100 female goats click on the link Goat farming project report of (100+5 goats)
