    We have kids that we have raised from bottles, nearly 2 dozen and wondered how long to creep feed them for?


    They have had creep feed available and do well with the set up they are in

    They have free choice, water, and the creep, but we are unclear on how long to offer this for?

    They are being raised for breed stock and for meat.. They are Boer goats and Boer goat mixes.

    When we got them they were very underweight for their ages, so we have worked hard to get them to appropriate weight and size, if possible. They are about 6 months plus or minus, a few weeks.

    I'd keep creep feeding.
