Greetings all. I haven't posted in a long while but have been checking in periodically. I stopped breeding last year and sold my herd down from around 30 to only 11 of my most precious, oldest and well you know, the ones you just can't part with. My herd is now a dry legacy herd of spoilt Toggs and Mini Toggs, all does excepting one hotshot wether. I feed rye mix hay in the summer and alfalfa hay in the winter. Can't get the rye in the winter and Timothy hay imported from Colorado is WAY unaffordable. There is also bermuda available, but my goats won't touch it. I also feed Sweetlix Magnum Milk minerals. No concentrates or sweet feed as nobody is in milk. The hay quality here leaves a lot to be desired and my animals waste more than they eat. I'm getting sick of it and am thinking of switching to an Alfalfa/Bermuda blend pellet exclusively. They like the pellets, as I've used them for milk stand treats during show clipping, hoof trimming and the like.I guess they can't tell they're part Bermuda. At 15 dollars a bale for not so hot alfalfa I'm sure pellets will be more cost effective. I know there are people who feed pellets, but I'm in the dark about: How to make the transition how much to feed whether pellets may be a choking hazard for older goats or those who tend to hoover up their feed like there's no tomorrow. How to feed so that the bullies don't take everything and the most timid get their share. Any suggestions you all may have will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
