    Well, my boer doe and her kids are losing hair on there ears. That is the only place and they never itch hardly. They don't have lice( were already treated for that). Any ideas???

    supply companies do not post prices as they dont sell off their website. YOu have to call around to the feed stores in your area.

    The brands I like are: Top Choice by Southern States, Purina Goat Minerals by Purina & Sweet Lix meat Maker my Sweet Lix

    Top choice was like 30.00 for a 50lb bage Purina was like 13.oo for a 25lb bag and Sweet Lix was 12.oo for a 20lb pale.

    These tend to last a while accept that Billy likes to eat chuncks at a time! I always shop around because I can't afford to lose money.
