4 months ND - a handful
Pregnant pygmy and ND: 1 -2 cups (depending on where they are in pregnancy. Give more mid pregnancy then early or late because that is when the babies are developing the most)
Milking ND - 2 cups
3 month full size - handful
Milking Nubian - (I give 1 standard size coffee can each milking) aprox 4 cups+
Milking ND (same as above?) - 2 cups
These all can be fugged a little depending on their individual needs and you can feed this once a day for the non milking but those that are milking should get grain twice a day if you are milking twice a day.
