Its on merit seed Co website. The info I got was that alot of sheep people use it. I had heard of using turnips and rape but figured that might be even better for goats. The kicker is being careful to either allow it along with brush and lower quality pasture or keep coarse hay in front of them. Again based on what research I have done. I just was figured personal comments would either support or reject what I had read.

Turnips, rape, and kale are a pretty popular mix for organic rotational grazing facilities in my area. Both goats, and cattle alike. Especially in the "crappy" years, like this one. Very high success off it. Actually reading an article in The Country Today paper.
