Is corn good for goats? I feed it to them just not sure if it meets there nutritional needs. What should I be feeding them? They are dairy goats just yearlings so they are still growing any help is appreciated!
No, it doesn't. Corn silage is simply chopped corn - stalks, ears, leaves and all - that has been allowed to ferment. If the silage has not been put up properly it molds and can cause listeriosis in goats, which can kill them. Dry yearlings should not need grain at all unless your hay is of an inferior quality. If you are that concerned about them growing out properly get a 14% grower pellet and give them about 1/2 pound per doe per day.Ok so that means it is better to feed corn siliage than corn?
