Does eney one have eney sugestions on goat food?
Well, I would start with either a good quality hay or a adequately sized pasture of suitable grass, browse, weeds, or some combination of the above. Depending on whether they are mature, pregnant, nursing, kids, weaning kids, yearlings, or milking goats I would add a suitable grain that supported their production stage. A little more information would be helpful in determining what their plane of nutrition should be made up of.Does eney one have eney sugestions on goat food?
A 20 lb goat should still be nursing his/her mother and will be eating only about 1-2 lbs of hay. For an adult, standard sized goat, 5 lbs of hay per day would be where I would start. Keep an eye on her and if she starts looking hollowed out in front of the hip bones, increase her hay by 1 lb increments. I don't feed grain, and I never feed more than 1 lb of alfalfa in addition to full hay per day. Start out slow with grain or pellets - 1/4 to 1/2 lb per day and increase by 1/4 lb after 3-4 days. Since you are looking to milk your doe once she becomes big enough to breed and delivers kids, I might feed her 2-3 lbs of pellets or grain per day. Again, start slow and increase gradually. I have no experience with milking dairy goats, though.All of r goats r use as pets we r thinking about milking r nanny. But about how much of that mixture would u use for to small goat.
