  • Diet and Digestion
    Goats are related to other ruminant cud-chewing animals such as cattle and sheep. For this reason, it was once believed that goats coulds be fed the same as their ruminant cousins. But goats are primarily browsers, selectively eating a wide variety of shrubs, woody plants, weeds and briars. Unfortunately many goats, especially does, are unable to get enough nutrients from browse alone to meet their needs. It is also important to realize that certain types of browse pose a danger; wild cherry, hemlock, azaleas and species of the laurel family are all poisonous to goats.

    To provide the nutrition goats need to reach their full potential, supplemental feeding is often needed. Most common supplemental feeding programs include pasture, hay, dry forages and root crops with a prepared diet.

    Problems with Hay and Pasture
    Hay and pasture may vary considerably in quality and nutrient value. Of particular concern is deficit, excess or imbalance of vitamins, minerals and micronutrients needed to promote growth and good milk production. Protein quality can also vary, as well as the level of amino acids. Inconsistencies in quality can be influenced by climate, land use and time of year. Controlling these inconsistencies is an important part of providing the nutrition your goats need to lead healthy, productive lives. For this reason, Purina Mills® has developed a full line of goat feeding products designed to take the guesswork out of feeding goats at all life and developmental stages.

    The Importance of Nutritional Balance
    The productivity and well-being of your goats depends largely on the quality and quantity of the feeding program you provide. Balancing your goat's feeding program and providing the correct diet ensures your goats are receiving the total sum of the daily nutrients they need for optimal health.

    Nutrient needs will vary depending on the goat's life stage and activity level. A feeding program balanced for maintenance, for example, will not be sufficient to meet the nutritional needs of growth, pregnancy, lactation, wool production or for developing body condition and coat quality for showing. As nutritional demands rise with increased production demands, it will be important to readjust your goat's diet and feeding program accordingly.
