I am looking for a goat feed formula to replace the commercial feed I've been using. They only get a small amount of it on the milking stand, but they really don't need to be eating even a small amount of GMO corn and soy.
Do any of you goat people have your own recipe? I'm looking at oats, black oil sunflowers, and perhaps kelp. I'd like to come out around 16% protein.
I found one recipe that has you add 12c of molasses to 100lb on a tarp. Let me be honest with you, I don't have time for that sticky mess each month.
I've also started feeding Chaffhaye which already contains some molasses. The girls adore it and so far it seems to be more cost effective than the GMO questionable alfalfa pellets I had been feeding.
What about a fodder system? Kris, you've done that before, right?
Any ideas or suggestions are appreciated. Basically I need a cost effective, nutritious, non-GMO system that won't take me a ton of hours a week to implement.
