Ok, I've never given my goats BOSS....But after reading all the posts on everyones ravings with them making the coats shinier and helping with overall condition and milk production I bought a 5# bag just to top dress and see how it may help my girls. Funny thing is this....the one doe I am trying to keep in milk because she has been retired as a breeder ABSOLUTELY HATES THEM!!! The other girls got a 1/4 cup with their grain and just pigged it up and was looking for more...well Bootsie decided that she did not like those little black things in her feed and she spit and sputtered the whole way thru milking :ROFL: , the witch even held her milk until I took those "nasty" things away! I gave her a "uncontaminated" handful of the regular grain and she "politely" ate and let me finish.....now mind you, this is also the "spoiled" brat that REFUSES to eat ANYTHING that another goat or even me have taken a bite from.....I make them "jelly toast" with stale bread and the others will nibble together but she has to have her own! Wish I would have thought to get video of her...the noises she was making were awful...you'd swear I was trying to poison her! :slapfloor: Any ideas on keeping her production going? She was giving me at her peak just over 2 qts a day with 2x a day milkings from the beginning of April til the end of June then I went to once a day beginning in July because I was barely getting a pint each time...now it's just under a pint a day...she gets 2 1/2 cups of 18% with milking as well as browse and hay....she obviously detests the BOSS, I did get alfalfa cubes to add to her grain mix.....any other suggestions for my old brat?? She freshened Feb 13th.
