OK, I have heard a lot of people talking about alfalfa pellets and how that is all they feed to their goats hay wise. I live in Indiana and our season was really dry therefore, our field didn't do well. I don't know how much extra hay we are going to need, but what we have now will only get us through to January. I will buy more hay as need be, but it can get pretty expensive in the winter. I have a 1/2 bag of alfalfa pellets that we add to the grain (a handful to bring up the protein level before shows). Other than that, i don't use them. I don't remember how much the bag cost, what is the average cost of a bag? I was really wanting to supplement my current hay in order to make it last longer or stretch farther. Do you give the does free choice alfalfa pellets? If not, how much per doe? I don't know why I just feel bad putting pellets in front of them when I'm used to them munching on hay all day long. The only animal that gets grain right now is our buck who is being pretty heavily used. If it gets really cold I will give the does a handfull of grain in the morning and at night. What do you guys think?
