What is everyones idea on feeding alfalfa pellets to meat goats? Currently When there is good forage we let them forage for all their food. They look good. They might grow slightly slower but their feed cost is lower. We are selling goats at $1.25/lb. I am trying to see if it is better to feed alfalfa or let them graze for free during the summer. Fall they will be sold before we have to feed. Winter we feed the does and kids goat rations and alfalfa hay (not free choice). We have never given alfalfa pellets free choice to the kid goats. Would it make a difference that would pay for itself?
