Our guy gets what's called Boer Goat Developer. It is 17% protein & has a coccistat in it.
He also gets free choice alfalfa along with a good loose mineral.

Well, first I would like to say, the breed is called Boer, not Boar. A boar is a uncastrated male pig, but a Boer is a breed of goat. Sorry, I just see that a lot.

Now, I feed a 16-18% protein feed with Calf Manna. They get free choice alfalfa, oat hay and pasture, along with loose minerals.

Now your buck was born in January? How big is he right now?
I would say give him 2-3 lbs of grain a day if he is in good shape.
