    I was wondering if LMF Gold would be good for goats to eat. I only wanted to add a small amount of it to their ration, just to condition them up a little. It has soy oil, and beet pulp in it.

    Thanks in advance!

    Who makes it? What are the ingredients on the tag?

    Hi, my feed store carries LMF Gold as well and I have feed it to my goats when I was also giving it to my mini horses. SO yes it is safe and it is actually made their coat really sleek and shiney

    Thanks six shooter. That is what I am going for. LMF gold has a high oil content, and less sugar. So I wanted to condition them a little more without giving them a ton of molassas, which I don't think is really that great for them in my opinion. Regular grain ration has a ton of sugar, and I just worry about all of that.

    I dont know if i would feed it to them, as LMF Gold is intended for high energy very athletic horses.
    I think you would be better off just giving flax seed for skin and coat condition. The gold has quite a bit of beet pulp in it, and it also has quite a bit of sugar. The thing with horse feeds are they are not formulated for a ruminant, but rather a single stomached animal.
