I really hate using commercial animal feeds because of the vast amounts of pesticides in some of the ingredients.....cottonseed meal to name one. Our reasons for raising animals for food is to be healthier, first and foremost, and then secondly to be more independent. Anyone use natural ingredients with success? By natural ingredients, I am referring to a diet that is as natural as possible for a goat. Anyone just use pasture alone? that would be the ideal of course, and I'm sure one would surely sacrifice some milk quantity, but wouldn't the quality be healthier. Same with organic produce; it's smaller but more nutritionally dense.
