    I would like to know how much i should be feeding my 5 month old Boer buck. I think im over feeding him. Right now hes getting around 3-5 cups when im around to feed him, when my stepdad feeds them i dont know how much he gets. So for a growing kid how much should he get daily?

  2. A veggie can in the morning and in the night should be plenty.

    Veggie can meaning the cans you get your grean beans in ir corn etc. :thumbup:

    I don't think JD meant for you to give your buckling a veggie can full of corn :? He was referring to the size can that you would buy green beans or kernal corn in,,,,your boy would do well with the amount of grain that a 2 cup can will hold twice a day.... :thumbup:
