Hi Brian,

I would suspect your goats are in need of salt or minerals. We use a loose salt / mineral mix called Cattle 6:12 which is specially ordered from the feed store. It contains the proper calcium to phosphorous ratio. If that doesn't stop them then it may be that they are hungry or simply bored. If its the feed or minerals then they should quit chewing when you get it figured out. I doubt coating the wood will help in that situation. If its boredom there are a couple of things you can do. The simplest thing is to make a goat berry tea from their dropping and spray it on the wood to discourage them from chewing. As a last case scenario you may have to tack a wire screen over the wood.
