When Carolyn Eddy died in April 2018, she willed a generous sum to NAPgA to be used to fund research that will further the interests of goat packing. NAPgA recently embarked on a research project on urolithiasis. This devastating condition is one of the few things that commonly kills our beloved wethers. Urolithiasis, or urinary calculi, has been studied fairly extensively in meat goats, but we believe the causes are quite different for pack wethers. We hope to learn more about the types of stones common in packgoats, why they form, and hopefully how to prevent them. Because Carolyn Eddy wrote the book Diet for Wethers, we believe that this research project is in keeping with Carolyn’s spirit and passion.
