Greetings! This is my first post. I have had milkgoats before but it has been a while. I have 8 month old Saanen does that have just been bred. I have been feeding them all the brome hay they want plus about a pound each of Purina Goat chow a day. Does this seem about right? (The wieght tape said they wieghed 84 pounds each at seven months.) They don't feel too fat. (feeling ribs to estimate this under new winter coats.) I am wondering if I should increase the grain ration a bit now? Or should I keep it the same until they kid? I have been looking through books and such for the answer to this and haven't had any luck. Also I am considering adding alfalfa pellets gradually to their ration when they are giving milk. Any thoughts on this? (Where I lived when I had milkgoats before alfalfa was the hay available and now it is brome.) Thanks!!
