    What kind of goats do you have?

    I have pygmys and a cattle panel would work great.

    Here is a picture of what I plan on using if needed. Right now each baby is eating with their mom.

    Mine are boer goats and they don't seem to have any trouble getting through the gate until they weigh about 60 lbs.by then they should be able to make it without the creep feed.Don't know about the dairy goats though..
