I have not milked in 2 1/2 weeks. My adult does are separate from my LM doelings. I am just feeding the LM adult does good coastal hay and Yaupon limbs cut and thrown in the pen. No alfalfa pellets or feed of any kind. Does are of good weight. Can they do well on this diet til 100 days bred or do I need to feed alfalfa the whole pregnancy? I withdrew alfalfa pellets to dry them up but was wondering if i had to get them back on pellets soon. I plan to reintroduce alfalfa pellets and then oats towards end of pregnancy. Will lack of calcium in early pregnancy hurt mature does? They are freshly copper-bolused and have pink eyelids and good weight.
