We have some really nice, leafy alfalfa that we've been giving our goats on the farm. . . . I brought some of this home with me and I want to give it to my goaties, but these girls are almost yearlings, they are bred, but not producing or anything like that. Do u give your goats alfalfa only if they are lactating?? I'm letting Leona have some because she's a baby and spoiled. But Lyla and Claribelle I doubt really need it (they want it for sure!) - should I give them some? If so, how much each day? Also, does alfalfa really make goats gain weight? We have a couple pygmies and they look like pygmies (round bellies). I shouldn't give this to them, right?
