We give Calf Manna, Noble Goat Grower 16 and a 12% sweet feed as a filler to our shows goats. We also tried a show supplement called Champion Drive, but now that show season is over they are off that and look no different. So I think I wasn't giving enough of that..?

We for sure know about champion drive, we feed a lot of it to our show wethers. They are on calf manna also forgot to mention that. I'm just spending a million dollars! They are worth it just looking at other options :)

Yes, feeding goats is expensive! My two dairy girls that I am trying to put weight on are eating off brand Calf Manna (cheaper, too :) ) Purina Noble Goat Dairy Parlor 16%, free choice alfalfa, and a cheap-ish 8% wet cob.
I'm also give that to my Boer doe.

We have free choice alfalfa too. I tried then on alfalfa pellets because it was hard to find hay bakes and my girls hated the pellets
