Pygmy goat's diet

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi, I just purchased 2 - 9 week old wethers. I am feeding them King Brand Pygmy Goat Complete. I need clarification as to how much I feed them. I was told 1/3-1/2 cups. Is that per goat or total for both of them. I am new to goats. I am also feeding them alfalfa and they are grazing in our yard. I appreciate any help especially with wethers. I want to prevent kidney stones. Thanks.

I limit any grains and rations to a handful a day and allow free choice eating of grass, browse, grass hay, goat mineral, and baking soda. I stay away from alfalfa, it's too rich for wethers in my opinion. I haven't had any with stones in 25 years except for one purchased 3 month old buck who was dead about a week or so after purchase from a ruptured bladder. I don't know what they were feeding but there was lots of packaged rations in bowls. I prefer a more natural diet for mine. It also keeps them from have any digestive troubles.
