Is annual ryegrass OK for goats to eat? I am planning on putting the bottom of the back pasture in rye this winter, if it is okay for the goats. I had heard that perennial rye was bad, but we don't use it around here (North Florida).

I dont know that Rye is bad - I planted it before after doing some research and from what I found it was only possibly a factor in some abortions early on in pregnancy. But since grass doesnt grow here till like May and my goats kid in May I never paid it much attention :shrug:

Goats love rye but just keep in mind that rye has little protein so I would not feed as an every day feed for them.
