So we gritted our teeth and bought two bales of alfalfa hay at the feedstore at a ridiculous price. We live in hay country, so we thought "no problem!", only to find out everyone is sold out. We ordered 40 tons but it won't be baled till Tuesday. Being new at goats, I don't know if they should have free access to alfalfa hay or if it should be rationed to prevent digestive problems. I seem to have read something about alfalfa in excess making goats ill. I can't find specific info online, so here I am asking you all. Each milker gets a pound of concentrate in the evening, and during the day they are foraging as I have no more hay. There is more clover etc than they'll ever be able to eat. So should I ration the alfalfa hay or can they free feed on it? Thanks in advance for your help.
