Feeding and breeding goats on the small farm
When you start a goat flock, you will know that goingats need some expertise to feed them properly. Be it breeding goesats for meats, setting up a milking flock or simply leading a sustained life on your farm, goingats need to pay close heed to their food to flourish. A good general principle: Do not make any dramatic changes to the feeding of your nanny cats.
Do not feed them large quantities of new foods. Any of these methods can cause a large indigestion for your nanny cats. Modify their diet gradually, leaving the germs in their abdomen (their first abdomen, for the first stage in the intestines of the plant they eat) to adapt.
The goat is known for its capacity to graze on anything from beautiful lush vegetation to bush forests where it can feed on young tree and winter shrub. Release the legend when you hear that a goat is a good "lawnmower". The goat is a ruminant, that is, an animal that eats a plant and digests it through a four-chamber belly.
Indeed, the goat should not feed on completely green weed. In addition to its assortment, hey is the primary nutrient resource for the goat. They usually have this in winters when they don't have enough to buy. Every goat needs about two to four pound of straw a days, minus what it could feed on the willow.
When there is no good assortment, dried grass-whay of horse grade is reasonable. The goat needs extra rough fodder to make its paunch work well. It is the first part of the abdomen full of living germs that the fibre begins to ingest. The goat has a large paunch that is soft and fluffy.
The Alfalfa-Heu is also a favourite feed for the goat and contains more proteins, Vitamine and mineral than weeds. Can be a good option for milker feed as it also contains morecium. It ferment es in the tank and adds useful germs for the goats' odours. Cereal feed or a mixture of pellets can introduce proteins, Vitamine and mineral into the nutrition of your goat.
However, most growers add cereal feed when needed - for example when rearing several children or in poor weathers - but forage hunting and browsing are the basis for good goat-feeding. Cereals should not be overfed: It can make a goat fattening, cause disease and even die. Several goat breeders want an animal food consultant to develop a goat cell that can be used as needed.
Your regional animal nutrition scientist can adapt the feed to the specific requirements of your region and minimize your feed problem. Or you can have your feed sampled to supplement the information your animal food supplier will use to formulate this feed. Bulk mineral formulations for goat should be available for free selection. Feeding each mineral separately, not in tablets containing a combination of them.
Most of the time, the goat will eat your compos. Eggshells can be a problem, but most other simple cooking and composts are suitable for goat as long as they are used to them. Raisin and crisps, just a few, or a piece of sandwich, are good "treats" for a goat, but don't go overboard.
Also for the feed of your nanny-goat you need one. There is nothing unusual, but keeping it in a crib helps goesats to use it and reduce wastage. Food supply hoppers made of steel or synthetic material with sealed covers keep insects away from your food. You may need something for your goats: Naturally, your goesats must have constant availability of safe, unpolluted freshwater.
You will need to use a heating system in order to prevent your goats' waters from getting ice-cold and turning to a frost.
