The only feed my Lamancha and Saanen does seem to do well on is Blue Seal but at $22/ bag and special order it isn't my first choice. Last order got lost. I've tried the other goat feeds available locally: Purina, etc and a locally milled one and my does lose interest and lose weight. Mid South Mare and Foal feed is 16/7 and I'm going to take that leap.
Otherwise they free forage, I've changed their minerals three times cause they stop eating them, they are getting alfalfa hay.
Anything I should watch out for? It isn't for the buck or bucklings who are in a separate paddock; just the does.

They are doing very well. I ran out of the Purina so started on the MidSouth Mare and Foal at 1 qt first morning, the 1 qt second morning and 1 qt that evening for two more days, then 2 qts each time and there were no issues with the change over. They look very well with coats getting a shine recently I hadn't seen in months. I'm paying $14/ 50 lbs for the mare and foal which is significantly cheaper than Dumor (16.99) Purina (19.99) or Blue Seal. I was paying $22/ 50 lbs for the Blue Seal.

Thank you. Florida has been a huge challenge for my goats and goat-keeping. Hopefully at least the feed thing is behind us.
