So yeah...we know, Jenny's thin. I do plan on drying her off early, probably around May when the kids are weaned (no way I'm bottle feeding bucklings). HOWEVER, I'd like to not have to, so what do I need to change/add to help her gain/maintain? I know, everyone tells me a lactating doe won't gain weight, but she still looks better than when she was pregnant. Right now, she's getting 2 scoops dairy ration, 2 scoops dry beet pulp, canola oil and minerals, plus as much alfalfa as she'll eat in a day (4 huge flakes out there right now). I'll be adding better alfalfa and Calf Manna Thursday, but until then, should I increase, decrease, what? There is a little bit of browse, I'm sorely tempted to throw her in the front yard to eat all the dang henspit that's popped up this week.
