I'm sure there are a zillion identical questions similar to this one, but since we've had such a sudden weight loss in our goats, I started to question their feeding schedule and type of feed. My boss bought these goats without knowing anything about them and seems to think they should be like dogs that live in a field. He has instructed our ranch hand to give them feed twice a week and branches once a week (and I have heard of acidosis recently, hence why I'm asking). They also have hay (which kind, I'm not sure) available to them constantly, as well as grass and plant debris from the woods. They are not free range. Everyone gets feed, including the males. Occasionally they will get fruits and veggies that are leftover from grocery stores. I just bought some Calf Manna supplement and BOSS to mix into the feed, but then I looked at the type of feed this morning. Its 11% Sweet feed from Manna Pro. I've heard mixed opinions on this feed, so I just want to know the correct way to feed these goats.
