My goat have some flaky skin which some you suggested they might be zinc deficient, can they have too much zinc I feed some sunflower seeds which have zinc in them “ I think “
And I just picked up some human zinc pills two days ago and I’m going to give them one a day for a week and then one once per week . How long should I give them zinc? 1 month?, 2 month ?or less than one month??? Or more than 2 months?

Thoughts

Thanks everyone.

I give one of my does a human zinc three times the first week then go to once a week since she eats a lot of loose minerals. You might start there and see how she’s doing in a month and adjust accordingly.
She’s my problem child and needs more than my others. She’s only bad in the fall and spring as she’s growing or losing her winter cashmere.
