A new deworming goat dewater that’s being developed by Dublin-based company RTE.
The dewormers, designed for the world’s most impoverished communities, include a cream-coloured paste that’s formulated to be absorbed quickly by the skin, and a gel-like gel that works as a natural barrier for the goat.
It’s designed to be applied to goats’ feet or in other places where they’re easily contaminated.
Its an ambitious project, but the company believes its products could be used to combat an epidemic of infections, including tuberculosis.
The new goat-dewormer gel-gel has already been used by the Global Food Security and Development Program in South Africa.
A video showing the gel-dewater and how it works is available on the company’s website.
The company’s founders, Simon and Fiona Wicks, are based in Dublin, and said their aim was to create a new way to tackle food insecurity in rural communities.
I’ve always been a goat farmer, and I thought, why don’t we try something different, to try something that we would never do, to do something that is much more sustainable, said Mr Wicks.
The product is a paste that has been infused with goat milk, and then the goats are treated with a combination of antibiotics, vitamins, minerals and herbs.
Its made from a mixture of goat-based ingredients, such as goat milk and water.
It was tested in a number of communities in India, Kenya and Tanzania, where goats were given the treatment for the first time, said Ms Wicks on the website.
The company’s gel-goat dewormery is intended for use in the rural areas of Africa.
In India, it’s been used for treating the population of farmers who live on a farm near Madras, where it’s applied twice a day.
It’s also being used in places such as China, Bangladesh, Kenya, Ethiopia, Tanzania, Uganda and Myanmar.
In the U.S., it’s being used by food banks in California and the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
Ms Wicks said the gel is formulated to work within a certain range of concentrations.
She said the company hopes it will be commercially available in 2020.
She said it could also be applied in other settings where it could be effective, such the United States and Europe.
The team is looking to raise $1 million to produce the gel gel-to-gel, but said they’re not looking to profit from the product, but to use it as a tool to help people who are struggling.
