Not in a week. It will take months to put 20-30lbs on.

You can start with a good feed, hay free choice, browse and loose minerals. Dont over feed because then you'll have other issues like bloat, enterotoxemia and upset tummies.... the bloat and over eaters can kill them. Start it slow and work them up

Once you start with the basics slowly (like a few weeks from now) add in black oil sunflower seeds for fat and coat health. They only need a handful

WOW, if they are that underweight then the real issue here. 4H showing is suppose to be the pinnacle of animal care. So either there is a serious issue with the goats or a serious management issue with their people.
