I just watched a video that said not to feed grain AT ALL to my male goats?? This is their main source of food!! Should I stop giving it to them? If so what should I feed then cause they don't eat much hay
good to know (what kind of boys do you have?) we treat with grain (the wether is almost 6 months old and alittle thin) and have alfalfa pellets in a bucket as well as hay free choice....My boys all get grain. I balance it with alfalfa pellets. Once they are grown, they normally don't get it unless they are working mainly because they would get obese.
Can you feed Nobel Goat to the whole herd or just the boys? This could be an issue since everyone eats together (except the one being milked)....My 6 month old Nigerian dwarf wethers eat 1/2 cup of Purina Nobel Goat feed per day. Their main diet is browse, pasture and hay all day. Nobel goat has ammonium chloride in it to help with urinary issues.
