I don't like the goat chow. Too much molasses and corn! I use the Purina Goat Grower and like that a lot better (still more molasses than I'd like though) and it's an easy one to recommend to new owners when they pick up their kids. Easy to find at the farm supply store and it has ammonium chloride in it so I feel safer recommending it to people who are buying wethers. For my own feeding regime I add things to it depending on the situation (BOSS, barley, rice bran pellets, and/or calf manna.) I think it's easier to make additions to an existing feed than to start completely from scratch, but I know people here do that too!
