Nigerian Dwarf Dairy Goats

for people who love the littlest dairy goats

Recently a friend asked how much I feed my goats and how often. Well as of Monday I have cut back from twice a day to only am feeding. They have all the second cut they want and fresh water, minerals and baking soda . We built a 3 sided shelter for them as well, I now lock them out of the barn durning the day. This really will help to keep the barn cleaner longer. Hope this doesn't sound cruel . Curious to know what other people do.

If they are on pasture, they can eat all day long, and then you only need to give them hay at night when you bring them into your barn. They should have access to hay or pasture most of the time because they have a rumen that needs to keep working 24/7.

Just an FYI, this is more of a discussion forum type post than a blog post. If you are interested in getting input from others, the discussion forum also gets more traffic than the blog section, so you would probably get more responses.
