    Should I feed the loose minerals free choice or mix a little in their grain during milking? How much do they eat? I have three milkers.

    We leave out loose minerals too...our goats dont use much of them. We also leave out a mineral block and our goat use it some times. And we also leave out Kelp and they go to it first for minerals. At first, they consumed a lot but after a few days, they don't use much at all and it is always out.
