    Can goats eat rosemary? I just trimmed my bushes and was wondering if it would make a good goat treat?

    as far as I know it won't harm them

    that would be interesting though - you know how feeding stuff can make the milk taste of what they eat? Im just trying to imagine rosemary flavoured milk now :greengrin:

    Our goats LOVE rosemary and will bowl you over trying to eat it. They've been eating it for over four years and still with us. ;) I would actually imagine it'd be good for their tummies, maybe even make their breath smell better. :D

    Yes.. I believe they can..active essential oil containing thymol, a natural antibiotic. :wink: :greengrin:
