Realistically you have a slim chance of making the 90/100# in this time frame without affecting the look of the animal. There are a few things you can do to help with weight gain, one is add good steamed rolled corn and like Kay said handful at a time twice daily. The last two weeks before showing start giving corn oil (cheaper the better) 10cc twice daily adding 5cc each day untill they scour then go back to last dosage before scours.You may also need to consider the frame size of your animal some goats look better at 75/80# than they do at heavier weights, sometimes pretty gets you better placings than being to heavy and sloppy looking. Next year look at adding some additives to your feeding program to help make weight
