I have 7 nubian goats 1 two year old doe 2 eight month old whethers 2 nine month old does 1 five month old doe and finally 1 five month old buck. I've raised my nine month olds on a pellet only diet since they were weaned and everyone looks nice and healthy. When other goat breeders come over they always comment on how nice thier coats look and how healthy they are. In my area the california high desert we pay $16-$19 a bale for alfalfa vs $12 a 50lb bag of 5/32 alfalfa pellets with a lot less waste. I would like to know how much pellets they should be eating a day, I have been giving them about 1/2 of a 5 gallon bucket a day thats 4-5 3 quart scoops of pellets. I also mix in beet pellets from time to time and sweet feed. so what do you think? I'll try to post pictures of my goats in the next couple of days.
