So... my two Nigerian does (both in milk and to be bred soon) currently get morning alfalfa, evening orchard grass, and twice daily grain (16% dairy mix - for cattle, but recommended by the person I got them from). I use Sweetlix Meatmaker loose minerals (also recommended by the person I got them from) which is offered free choice and also in the bottom of their grain dish. I'm seeing a lot of posts about selenium, copper, B vitamins, etc. How do I know when/if I need to use these?? My girls are a healthy weight, have good hair growth, etc. One has a chronic snotty nose, but it's not worsened even with the cold weather. I don't want to overload them on anything... but I don't want to hold back either, if there are things they should be getting regularly. Any advice would be appreciated. Also... what about worming? I don't like the use of chemical pesticides... but do use flea and worm stuff as needed on my dogs/cats. But since I'm drinking the milk... I'm not sure that the "wait till you see a problem" method is the best bet with the goats. I've had them since late July and haven't done anything thus far other than get their feet into shape. I'd rather not become the next episode of "Monsters Inside Me".
