    is flax seed okay to feed your goats and if so what does it do for them :whatgoat:
    i gave some to them cause i had it and they seem to really enjoy it.im out but was thinking of picking some more up for this next milking season.
    one of the goats was a bit thin and rough coat and was hoping to help her out.
    we also gave copusure to them incase it was the copper.

    so just wondering if anybody else gives flax seeds to there goaties :?
    thank you for any input on this.

    I have used it... you just take a pinch of it... when feeding grain to each goat and sprinkle on top.....it is good for their coats... makes them shiny.....I buy mine.. from the grocery store.. :thumb:
