I have a question - Here in Idaho there is a hay shortage, which has made the hay prices SKYROCKET and people are being forced to pay up to 250 a ton for grass hay and then the people will not let us pick up - so they deliver with an additional 50-200 dollar fee on top of the cost of the hay. So, I have somewhat cut down on hay and have been giving more pellets alfalfa, timothy/grass, and orchard grass pellets all mixed. I have also noticed how much hay my goaties are wasting. I cleaned my entire area on Saturday - by last night, I swear there was AT LEAST 1 full bale of hay back on the ground. I paid $7.00 a bale and that was cheap. I am just having a hard time swollowing the costs that I see going down the drain. So I was talking to a friend last night who has switched her goats to 100% grass pellets, and no hay. She said that she has acutal seen an increase in milk supply, no waste of hay, and no expense of taking the nasty waste to the dump. She also switched to wood shavings for bedding and has great success with cleanliness. I can get a ton of grass pellets for 180-200 which is about 9 cents a pound, versus 30 cents a pound for pellets in the stores. Here is my idea - I was thinking to keep hay for the horse, what ever they drop goats can have plus all the grazing that they want, then the horses and goats get pellets also (main sorce of food for the goats) What do you all think??? Please vote, and if you have more to add, please let me know.
