What Dalice is talking about is a fencing panel for cattle it is not really a feeder, it can be wrapped around the bale and adjusted as they eat. If the goats don't have horns the mesh is plenty big enough for an adult goat to stick it's head through and eat. We have our goat area fenced in with it and the girls are forever cleaning up the other side of the fence line. We do have some Boer X does that have horns and they can stick their heads through as well but they are only yearlings so as full adults they might not be able to. We feed round bales to all of our stock and found that the feeders were more trouble than they were worth so our bales our just set out for the animals. They waste more but nobody gets hung up with halters, horns or legs, for us the waste is the lesser of the evils.
