Kinder Goat Breeder
This year my mom is growing a lot more herbs than we ever have before and I've been taking handfuls of each of them to feed to the does because of the medicinal and anthelmintic properties of herbs. I'm concerned, though, that I've heard that peppermint and sage can lower milk production. How much would need to be fed for that to occur? I only give them about a handful of each around every week. I've not been giving them sage because I knew that it had milk lowering qualities, but I didn't know about peppermint until now. Should I not give them peppermint? We've been giving them: rosemary, oregano, thyme, pineapple mint, lemongrass, catnip, and the peppermint. We are also growing lavender, but I wasn't sure whether they should eat that. Any of those have any properties I should be aware of?
