These recommendations are a minimum guideline and should be adjusted to individual kid needs.
High quality colostrum should given on the first day of life
Begin feeding milk replacer on the 2nd day of life
Day 1: Feed high quality colostrum at a minimum of 10% of the kid’s body weight. Ex: A 10 lb (160 oz) kid needs 16 oz colostrum total. Feed 50% within 2-4 hours of birth, and the other 50% within 24 hours of birth.
Day 2, Onward: Offer free choice, fresh clean water at all times. Offer free choice Lamb N’ Kid Pellet beginning with small amounts, until 100 lbs body wt. OR offer free choice Meat Goat Pellet until they reach slaughter weight. (Both options contain Ammonium Chloride & Decoquinate).
Day 2-49: Feed Kid-Gro Asure milk replacer following tag directions. See product page for milk replacer feeding tips and schedule.
Day 28, Onward: Introduce good quality 2nd cut hay, starting with a small handful daily (ideally 5-10% of total dry feed).
Maintenance Goats: Switch to Sweet Goat 18% (does not contain Ammonium Chloride) at about 4-6 months of age, or when they reach 100 lbs body weight. Feed 0.5-1.5 lbs grain per day in addition to forage.
Lactating Goats: Switch to Dairy Goat Pellet in addition to forage. Feed 1 lb of grain per 2-3 lbs of milk produced daily.
Meat Goat/ Wether or Buck: Feed free choice Meat Goat Pellet (contains Ammonium Chloride & Decoquinate) until reach slaughter weight (no additional forage is needed). Or use at a lower rate as maintenance for male goats in addition to forage.
Goat on Pasture or Forage Only Diet: Offer free choice Goat Mineral in addition to good quality hay or pasture. Optimal intake is 1-2 oz/head/day.
Poor Quality or Lack of Forage: Feed Forage Extender Mini Bites to replace up to half of the forage in the diet, pound for pound.
