Does anyone here use BS16? I can have my feed store special order it. I am using the 14%, but I want a higher protein.
Can pygmies(does and wethers) and boer does be fed Caprine Challenger? It has 18% protein.
I'm not sure how much more either will cost me. The BS 14% costs me $10.10.

Hi there!! I have used both types of blue seal for the last 6 years on my pygmy/nigerians....never a problem with it and they love it!! My bucks get it too....no problems. Around here though the coarse 16 is $9.95 and the caprine challenger is $10.95. They like the fact that theres a good mixture of crimped corn and oats as well as pellets....they can't pick through it!! I never had any luck with feeding just pellets...tried it once and they absolutely would not eat them!! My babies also do great on these brands.

i feed bs caprine challange for 5 years when i was in maine & if i could get it down here i would switch in a heart beat. i used the 18% for my alpines. i used less & they looked better on it. i gave it to every one,bucks,does & kids. i can not get bs down in tn. a friend of mine up in maine raises boers & she feeds them the same thing & they look great.

I thought I couldn't get BS down here either, but then I found a feedstore about 40 minutes away that carries it. I like it ALOT beter than Purina!

I feed Blue Seal Caprine Challenger to my three wethers... yes, they are spoiled! But they do great on it and LOVE LOVE LOVE it! I don't need to feed them much because they are wethers, but they stay in great shape. Plus I add BOSS and Fastrack.

Hmm. Well, the guy ordered me three 50# bags(lasts a little less than a month here). I'll ask about the price on the CC.
How much less will they eat on CC vs 16%?
The boer doelings(8 and 6 months) get 3/4 lb(soon to be bumped up to 1 lb) and the dry doe/wether pygmies get 1/2 lb. Val(nursing) gets about 3/4 lb. They were on Dumor Mare and Foal(textured 16%). I really liked it, but TSC didn't order any after I put in an order. Twice. So, there goes my business.
