Our cows run with the goats quite often in grass growing months. The goats cannot keep the pasture down enough. We have a modge podge of cows right now.... 4 dexters, one charolais, one red angus charloais cross and an angus braunvieh cross. They all do well together. When the bucks are in with the cows they eat at the grain feeder like the rest of them. They just shove their way in lol. Same at the hay feeder. We just moved our cow and four month old calf out of the pasture with my does. They were fine even with the cow having a new calf. All that said... it just depends on the animals involved.Yall ever put a mini donkey or cow in with mini goats? The wife is wanting one so I am going to start my research.
Oh yea!our goats ALWAYS have a space roped off to get into the barn area where the cows cannot get into when in with the does. The bucks in the other cow pasture... well it is a four acre pasture with some woods. They ignore each other for the most part. Or they all wait limed up at the fence hollarin and bellerin for treats. Lol!Same as Sfwife, they are allowed to graze together but I don't and won't keep them together in a smaller pen. I have tried in the past to have calf's raised with the goats but it really comes down to the fact that cows are much larger then goats, even minis. I think it's fine in larger spaces where the goats can get away if the cows get a big rough with them. With mine though really the cows and goats ignore each other ONCE they realized the goats are not dogs and would attack them or their calf's.
We have 2 mini-donkeys in with our ND's. They all eat out of the same hay boxes together, but when I'm feeding alfalfa or grain to the goats, I'm careful to feed in places the donkeys can't get to in the little barn or catch corral.Yall ever put a mini donkey or cow in with mini goats?
