Yup, I feed it kinda heavy in late summer and early fall to fatten the girls up for the winter. I slowly cut back on it tho as they get farther into their pregnacies so that the kids aren't over growing and get to big that they have hard deliveries. I resume feeding it after they kid, cuz it helps to keep them at peak proformance and they don't lose weight when they are nursing kids. I don't know if thats right, but thats what my goat guru does and seems to work well for her, so I started doing it that way a few yrs ago.

I feed beet pulp all winter to my goats. Its a filler and another source of roughage. Alfafa hay is so expensive here and not all that impressive my girls pick through it. so i feed local grass hay and alfafa pellets. The beet pulp is another food the girls love.
You have to be carful feeding it to kids though.....it has lots of dugar in it.

I use to give it to the goats but the BP got extremely dusty. Not sure if Rural King changed brands or not. I use to feed it to the horses to so thats why the goats got it. Now that we got this bag that is extremely dusty I am not wasting any more money on the stuff. I'm changing my horses over to a different feed.
