    i've searched through the archives, and just can't exactly what i need.
    i have a big La Mancha doe just entering into her last month of pregnancy... i'm wondering what's the most important feed product that i should focus on. she is getting her (twice) daily ration of oats/beet pulp/cracked corn/BOSS, basicly free choice alfalfa pellets, hay, and graze. also minerals and soda.
    i just wonder if there is something i need to add? take away? maybe extra calcium??

    thank so much!

    Sounds like she is getting what she needs depending on the amount of grain, am assuming here you are still gradually increasing it until freshening. If she is on free choice alfalfa pellets then she should be ok on the calcium.

    i appreciate your help!
    isn't it true that i should increase her food to what she gets on the stand while milking?
    thanks again for your help! :) i'm had dairy goats for a year, but this is my first pregnancy. i've just bought them already in milk!
