So I think that the goat chow would not be worth it because it's purina and it just doesn't seem good.
So I would like to try sweet feed, we have cattle so we have lots of it.
I wanted to mix it with BOSS because I think the sweet feed would have enough protein. So what do you guys think? :)

I would choose something else, sweet feed usually is more of a 'candy' for goats and shouldn't be the main grain source as BOSS is more of a top dressing.

I am not a fan of sweet feed either. Plus many cattle feeds have urea in them which is not good for goats at all.

Ok, should I maybe just stick with the goat chow or noble goat then? And maybe alfalfa pellets as well?

I decided to feed oats and soaked barley because it will be healthier for them IMO.

If you have a lot of it and don't want to spend more money getting a different grain, or if you want to be able to feed all the livestock the same stuff, sweet feed won't kill them. Yes the molasses is like a candy but they can do just fine on it. Purina uses A LOT of molasses. But other sweet feeds don't use as much.
