Hello goat friends! We're into our 4th year of raising Lamanchas, and this past fall finally bought a fine buckling to service our does and hopefully improve our stock. The wet summer last year didn't produce great hay, but we have some that is of fair quality- the main deficiency is the low 11% protein (we had it tested) We were told this was pretty typical and resulted from the wet growing conditions. Combine the mediocre hay with this wet winter, and, we have a struggle keeping weight on our gang. We grain each animal individually twice a day and give unlimited hay, and have a mineral block. We've ruled out a parasite infestation by having fecal egg count done on each animal at a lab, and they're healthy otherwise. So I guess the problem is with what/how we're feeding. I'll take any advice on how to keep all of them at a healthy weight, but since we're new to owning bucks, my most pressing question is how do we bulk him up a bit? He's not severly underweight but does look a bit slimmer than he did this fall. We give him 1 small coffee can of Kalmbach 16% textured goat feed twice daily. He also has free access to hay and mineral block in his enclosure. He has a great pedigree, and we'd like to take him to a few shows this summer. We want to help him look his best.
