I was wondering if alfalfa pellets,goat chow and BOSS would be a good mix to feed my goats? I'm hoping this would be a good growth and weight grain?

Are you looking for winter supplement, weight gain, or management?

Growth it would work well for kids , but as for weight gain I suggest adding a higher energy "something" (protein or carb). Like oats, soy, cotton, corn, barley, etc. You can always add supplement high protein on top, anything higher than a 20% protein works well.

Calf manna is a good supplement.

Ok, so I live on a farm and our cattle get whole corn. Should I just add a handful of corn on top?

Indeed it is. Send it thru a hammer or roller milk first.
