Hi Pat, I am a San Diegian (El Cajon) transplanted to Texas :( Other than pasture, it's fairly tough to plant for goats. It would take years of maturity for the place to be able to regrow from the goats. We live in the National Forest and though our 13 acres is not eaten down, they do considerable pruning to the trees, underbrush, and vines. We have had great luck in overseeding our pastures with wild birdseed, our does love the grasses in it and also the black oil sunflower seeds. We grow them now, just cut the heads off when the seeds are ready, stack them in a dry place, and then pull them apart, head and all, the goats love them! We also by the BOSS in bags to up the protein and oils in their diet during the winter. Also a seed mix (Stock Master) from Premier, it contained 19 varieties of seeds including chickory, which I found out my goats loved and milk excellent on! You enjoy Southern California!
