Mornings: Oaten/lucerne chaff, plus lupins or field peas and good quality barley hay. 2 to 3 babies will drink 300 mls of milk each. Topped up with hay after breakfast. Pasture forage, but getting dry so not much left in yard.
Lunchtime: Hay and pasture, plus natural forage such as Acacia ‘needle leaf’ menzeii? or acacia Blackwood wattle.
Tea time: Soaked Speedibeet (beetroot flakes), sometimes more field peas given but not always. Barley hay is always available in their feeder. Some babies will drink 300 mls of milk at tea time if they missed out in the morning.
I feed grain and legumes to the pregnant does in last trimester and during milking only. (Wethers should apparently not have grain or pure lucerne hay chaff after 6 months of age due to risk of urinary calculi).
I mix field peas with wheat for milkers, which the babies can nibble on if they are in the same feeding pen as their mothers, but I don’t encourage it otherwise. I find that a good quality horse pellet such as tru gain or metasafe is a better choice for our goats. Metasafe by hygain contains no grain and is soy bean/canola meal based, which is nutritious and filling. They are also given copper boluses once yearly and a goat mineral block, which they don’t like much at all!
