    How much do you have to worry about clumpy poop? Not diarrhea just clumpy.
    Do you really worry about it? If the goat is not unhealthy or acting different do you just watch for any other problems?

    I tend to just keep an eye on it and watch for any discomfort in my goats.
    It's pretty common in my experience for goats to get clumpy with small dietary changes. They should normalize in a few days.

    If they start to get bloated, or just look uncomfortable then I take action. Otherwise I chalk it up to too much green grass, extra leafy alfalfa, or other random changes in diet.

    Thanks lady!
    Well lots of changes. New grass, new lovely alfalfa hay and that grain mix of goathappy.
    The oats, barley, boss, wheat bran and beet pulp. It tastes fantastic! I think I'm going to make a soup with it! No kidding it tastes that good.

    Definitely diet changes ...back her off a bit and gradually introduce it all slowly....if you have her in a grassy area... take her out and just put her out for a couple of hours at a time a day... until she adapts to it..... clumpy poo isnt always something to worry about .....watch for chances or increased feeds/ grains.... :wink: :thumbup:
