I have gotten mixed answers around feeding pygmy wethers. I do know that it is not nessacary to feed grain to wethers and they should still do fine on hay, minerals, and water. I however have a 6 month old wether that is not putting on weight well. I do not want to start giving him grain, as his twin had UC at the age of two months from feeding grain. He has been wormed, that is not the problem. My question now is, does alfalfa also raise the risk of urinary calculi. I had a vet tell me that it has too much calcium and can cause a different kind of uc than grain. Other people have told me that you can leave alfalfa pellets out free choice and that it will not affect your bucks and wethers. What is the truth? I dont think I'll ever get this feeding problem straight.
