    I have not used it but sometimes you have to do things outside the box.

    I do top dress my rations (which have alfalfa pellets, BOSS etc mixed in) with both Amplify and Calf Manna for my heavy milkers who have a hard time keeping weight on and I love it!

    It sounds like a good supplement for underweight goats. Where can it be purchased? We only have a Tractor Supply.

    Anywhere that sells Purina feed can probably order it for you. My local feed store gets it in for me. We don't have a Tractor Supply, so I am not familiar with what they carry.

    I think some TSCs carry it, but I'm not sure.

    How much of each do you feed?

    I currently use the Calf Manna at 10-15% of my rations and the Amplify at 5-10% and my girls get all they want twice a day on the stand, and if they are really thinning down an extra pound mid day as well.
