My neighbor has been coming over at lunch and giving my polio/listeriosis buckling his noon penicillin which is very kind of her...however, she commented over the past two days that I shouldn't be feeding alfalfa as it's too "HOT" a feed for goats. Grass alfalfa is $240/ton, the girls waste more of the grass, and straight alfalfa is 200/ton and they clean up more of it, so I chose the less expensive hay-the quality of the alfalfa is good. My question to the group is: should I have gone with the more expensive hay? Am I hurting my goats in the long run by feeding them alfalfa? Do other folks out there feed alfalfa? My goats are fullblood and percentage boers.
