Fancy feeds dry goat mix
- With best bruised oats and other cereals, carefully micronised to improve digestibility which helps reduce the risk of digestive upsets.Â These supply calories from soluble carbohydrate and fermentable fibre.
- Include quality digestible fibre from grassmeal to help with rumen function to minimise acidosis
- Quality protein for muscle and tissue repair andÂ development as well as milk and hair production.
- Fully balanced with vitamins and minerals for health and well-being.
- Contain Sel-PlexÂ® organic selenium to support fertility, immunity and muscle function.Â Much modern pasture and forage is selenium deficient so ensuring goats receive a good supply of this vital mineral will help support general good health and be passed to kids via the milk
- With a blend of Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids for a shiny coat.
Dry Goat Mix should be fed as required alongside forage based on the guidelines in the tableÂ above.Â
- Divide the concentrate ration into two or more small meals.
- Make any changes to diet gradually over 7 to 14 days to avoid upsetting the bacterial population of the rumen.
- Ad lib forage (grass, hay, haylage) should be available year-round and should comprise a minimum of 40 - 50% of the total daily ration.
- Forage is best fed in a raised rack to satisfy a goatâs need to browse rather than graze
- Avoid using haynets for goats as they tend to get themselves caught in them
- Feeding hay or fresh forage before giving concentrates will initiate chewing and saliva production and aid bicarbonate production. ThisÂ buffersÂ the acids of the rumen to help maintain a stable rumen pH which isÂ especially important at the morning feeding.
- Mouldy feed or forage is potentially lethal to goats as the mould can upset the bacterial population of the rumen.
- Chopped alfalfa products, such asÂ Alfalfa BlendÂ from the Baileys Horse Feed range, are ideal sources of additional good quality protein and fibre.
