    What's your thoughts? Has anyone tried it? We raise dairy goats all all our animals including our chickens get some milk everyday. I was thinking about soaking their feed with raw goat milk for a little extra boost.

    I'm guessing think it would be great .

    I do it.

    I ferment my whole grains/milled grains with whole milk and water. My pigs,hens and meat birds go crazy over it.

    I also give them a proper dry feed/mash as an option too. If they get just milk with ff they tend to stink a lot more, and poops are a bit more runny.

    Give it in moderation.
