Howdy folks and here's my question. I have nine does, seven of which were quickly breed during the first week in September. The remaining two were born in early March 06, one is a Boer and the other a LaMancha. I do not intend to breed them till Nov or Dec. Presently they eat a goat grain mixture (two big handfuls for each doeling) in the morning and evening, lots of browse, hay, pastures throughout the day until the frosts begin. Both of them will be bred this winter no doubt. I'm just verifying that my feeding regiment is on track. Should I up the grain? The Boer is huge, no worries, the LaMancha is the one I'm concerned about. Her frame is so much different than Boers. Her weight seems to be on track by me lifting her weight physically. I'm just looking for insight into this matter concerning special feeding before sheâs bred and then afterwards, until she freshensâ¦..Thanks for your input, just trying to learnâ¦.Tennessee John Hate to quote another thread but here goes---- "I go by weight and frame. They need to be 75-80 lbs. and have enough frame to easily carry kids. If fed right, they will grow a considerable amount during the five months of pregnancy."
