My kids will be selling their 4-H wethers in about a month at the annual 4-H sale. There are usually only a dozen animals, mostly country hams at the auction, and kids have to invite buyers. My kids are the only kids in our county that show goats! I usually help them make a flier to give or send out to buyers that include some info about the animal and misc photos & photos of them being shown. This year I'd like for them to try something new either with the flier and/or at the sale. I'd like for them to put together the average cost of raising the animal! I wish we'd had them start this at the beginning. What I'm having trouble figuring out: The Average cost of raising a Boer goat kid on the Whole Milk Recipe. We had 1 that was a bottle baby, and another that we supplemented with about 1/2 of what the bottle baby received. 6 bottles a day for about 2 months, then slowly took away a bottle each week after that. I know after 2 months they were drinking around 16oz. Average creep feed used from age 5 weeks to 2 months. I recall these boys weren't huge grain eaters until they were about 8 weeks old. After that they were eating at least 1lb. a day of pelleted feed. My brain is fried. Literately lol. So much going on right now we haven't been able to sit down and figure this out. My kids head back to school this week, and my oldest leaves tomorrow for school 2hrs away. Lots of big changes.
