    My grandpa cuts down cornstalks for the cows, sheep, and goats. Does anyone see anything wrong with feeding this to goats? They LOVE it and do not get too much, it does help them keep well-conditioned. They do not get (or need) much grain when eating this. Just curious.

    the stalks are just fine --- we feed the ones from our garden to my goats as well

    Oh my goats love it when I come back from the Farmers market. I get all the corn and stalks that I want. (that can not be sold because they are a little to dry).

    Just be careful not to give them to much at a time.
    When we are done with the garden, we turn the goats lose in it, they love it.

    Great! I'm glad it's okay as they certainly do love it. :)
