The rabbits getting alfalfa would be my only concern. Alfalfa would be great for the goats, not sure about the sheep.

They grow Alfalfa and orchard grass her by the millions of tons lol. Alfalfa can be REALLY low quality and stemmy, and goats don't seem to care for stems. Orchard grass can be poor quality too, but I have never seen orchard grass be as low quality as alfalfa can. Just make sure you check out the bales first.

If your goats are for dairy, I'd definitely go with alfalfa, especially with it being cheaper. But HOLY COW! I thought $24/bale was bad at our feed store! Of course... I'd gladly pay it if I got to live in Hawaii!!! Someday!:love: I use orchard grass in the winter to supplement my alfalfa... but my girls DEFINITELY prefer the alfalfa.
