Goat Nutrition & Care
Our goats always have FRESH Water & Free Choice Orchard Grass Hay along with Pasture to graze in.
Our hay comes from Double K Farms in Burlington, WA. We love that they test all their hay and the quality is always spot on!
Does in milk get free choice Alfalfa Pellets we feed in hog feeders. We use HAYSTACK brand Alfalfa Pellets.
Milking Does get grain on the stand AM & PM while we milk them. We make our own mix containing:
Free Choice Minerals
- Pregnant does are given CD&T 4 weeks prior to giving birth. This will allow the dam to pass immunity of clostridia and tetanus to her kids.
- At 4-7 days old we disbud kids.
- Kids get Toltrazuril 5% (Baycox) to help prevent coccidiosis at 3, 6, 9, & 12 weeks old. They are given 1ml per 5lbs body weight.
- At 8 & 11 weeks, kids get CD&T toxid.
We test our goats through WADDL for CL, CAE, & Johne's. Everyone is NEGATIVE :)
