*Provide your baby goat with good quality feed ( you should keep them on same feed and gradually switch to your feed this way it does not mess with the goat rumen). Make sure not to over feed them on grain. We also add Alfaya Pellets and BOS (Black Oil Sunflower seeds)
Also provide good quality hay and pasture.
We feed our goats 16 % Course Goat Feed from Co-op once per day and provide them with hay n the winter months
Because forage is most important in your goats diet. They have acces to pasture at all times.
* Minerals should also be provided. You can choose to leave
out as free choice our add to there feed.
We provide ours as Free choice and have several Mineral/Baking soda stations. We use the Mineral feeder with 2 sides (Green color).
We use : Sweetlix 16:8 Meat Maker Mineral 25#
My goats love it and it provides all the minerals they need
We also provide our goats with Baking soda that we place in our two sided feeders used for our minerals, one side for minerals and the other for Baking soda
*Your baby goat should be kept up to date on there vaccinations. We have or vet vaccinate are baby goats at 8 days old when dibudded.
Hoofs should be checked monthly and trimmed as needed. We have provided some rocks for them to climb on and play, we also put some rolled roofing oon our play area to help keep there hoofs sanded down naturally.
