Hello all,
I have a 7 month old nigerian buckling that is fairly thin, i'm deworming him and giving baycox but once his parasites are gone what's the best way to fatten him but avoiding urinary calculi? I bought this Goat and sheep show and wellness pellet awhile back. Wondering if I should feed that & dairy ration top dressed with ammonium chloride powder? He is currently on grass hay.

Something like goat grower would count as a goat feed/pellet, it must be otherwise balanced still based on your water source. You can also use one of the home blends for extreme weight gain #5 or #6 (choose one according to your water source). Any of these options are balanced (IMHEO) so choose whatever works for you.

Probiotics! You can get them at Tractor Supply if you don't already have some. They will be good for his overall health, and will help him get the most out of what you're feeding him.
