Raw potatoes are suppose to be bad for goats so do not give them raw potatoes. Cooked I'm not sure, I don't give my goats food scraps.

Hi, What i have read green potatos are poisonous. & also tomatos are meant to be. I have gave my goats scraps in the past and it didnt hurt them though.. But since I read that, i was never game to feed them scraps again.

Google it.

Take care.

Some say potatos some say potatoes...

I do believe tomatoes and potatoes are members of the nightshade family and the plant itself is poisonous. The fruit/tater isn't poisonous. Of course, don't feed any potatoes with green spots, sprouts or anything that looks... odd.

google doesn't know everything - experience is what I go by.

I have fed mine tomatoes for 12 years, no issues and never read about them being poisonous.

Mine get scraps from everything almost every day in the spring and summer. Makes for very happy goats :D

well... all depends what you read on google... Some scraps would be fine to feed them and make them happy im sure... but others are not..
just make sure your doing what you think is best for your goats..
