I need to put some weight on these boys. They are recently new to the pasture. I don't feed anyone in the pasture grain. They browse all day and I give hay. These two aren't doing well on it though so I think I need to put them back on grain? I want to get them ready for winter. How/what/when should I be feeding them

Id be putting them back on a high% protein grain, get a fecal & worm accordingly if needed.

What kind of hay? Alfalfa makes a huge difference if you can get it.

Our basic program is creep 3xs daily till about 9 mos & all the 3rd cut they can waste.

I can do alfalfa. I have my girls on purina goat chow. Can these two boys just eat that? I did a fecal last week and it was neg. They act really good, very hyper when it's cold. They love love love the alfalfa and have coastal hay
