I have always grained all my goats all yr just a little for everyone and more for my milkers I am starting to think about drying my girls off as I don't want to milk in winter or during breeding but I just don't feel good about not giving them any grain but was thinking I could give them alfalfa pellets right not we have great hay but this yr has been hard on hay crops so I know it won't last through the winter would a little alfalfa be good along with hay once I dry everyone up?

Its all alfalfa. It wouldnt be a whole lot of the alfalfa pellets, just a little in there grain rations each day. I just want to make sure that it will be ok before i buy any.

You do need to be careful of your calcium to phosphorus ratio with their entire diet. You may want to consider something like shredded beet pulp instead.
