Okay, so many people feed pellets because of cost of hay or to help increase milk production. Hay is pretty decent here. About $8.00 a bale. But I am wondering if I could add pellets to help with weight... I feel like my goats are loosing weight slowly. Everyone is on grain (about a cup each, I am working towards a 6:1 ratio of commercial grain to BOSS. I currently have Purina but want to try Dumor). They're hay feeders are never empty, though if you asked them they are starving because I leave the stems in the feeder for them to munch on after they've eaten all the leaves and flowers. And everyone is wormed and otherwise healthy...I just feet like they are slimming down Would pellets help them maintain good weight? What if I switched from Alfalfa to mix, which I had planned on doing anyway. Will grass help them keep weigh ton better. I know my horses get fat from just smelling grass hay! No one is boney, I am just being an over careful mom. Let me know your opinions!
