for people who love the littlest dairy goats
Wethers are extremely easy keepers. You can feed them the least expensive grass hay that you can find, assuming it is NOT moldy or brown. Moldy hay would make them sick, and brown hay could wind up causing vitamin A deficiency, although if you're in So. Cal. they might still get enough green feed outside year round to avoid that. If your wethers have access to green grass and browse year round, they may not even need hay except on days when they can't go out because it's raining.
Correct about the alfalfa. :)

Thank you! We used to feed them orchard but they didn't seem to like it as much. They only have access to grass and browse on the weekends as they are in their pen when we aren't home so I will try orchard again, or maybe even bermuda. Alfalfa is not as good for them (because of the extra calcium??), correct?
