    Try this link ... it should take you to a page with a couple of articles, then below the articles is a list of links for calculators. They're pretty cool ! Some of them are a bit extravagant though. But there's a simple one I'll post as well.

    And then HERE is the SIMPLE calculator :

    Anyway, thought perhaps they could come in use if anyone's unsure of the correct rations/nutrients, etc. for their goat/s.

    That is pretty cool.

    I just wish places like that would put Cashmere goats. They have a totally different nutritional value them a Angora goat, but everyone thinks you can lump them together.

    Feed companies have complex programs like this for horses, too, but retailers and vets have to pay for it. Sometime hundreds of $$. Good to see that something is out there for goats and it is free!
