There are a couple of threads about this. viewtopic.php?f=13&t=12

Its not a set in stone science. Each person has their own method. Here's ours. viewtopic.php?f=13&t=107

I'd also recommend Carolyn Eddy's book, "Diet for Wethers". It goes into great detail on the dietary requirements of a wether and heath issues associated with improper diet.

THis is a good feeding program for weanlings and yearlings. As they get older they don't need the grain and alfalfa and overfeeding them can lead to a number of metabolic issues and urinary calculi.
