I have a couple of questions 1. Alfalfa pellets- Can they make themselves sick with these? How much should they be eating in a day? 2. Sweet Feed- I see many of you are mixing your own grains. Is there a site I can read about this as I cannot get a goat ration here just a dairy cow ration. I have continued feeding my new goats (2 does - 1 bred, Alpines) what they were getting when I bought them... hay (plain mixed variety) and a sweet dairy ration. I also top dress with BOSS. I am not sure about the quality of hay I am getting, it's quite weedy, so I bought some alfalfa pellets after reading through these pages. I put out a small amount and they gobbled it like candy. I have been giving them a little more each day but I can't imagine letting them go at it free choice. Maybe they will settle down but I don't want them sick. I am currently giving them 2 cups of pellets each. I started out a week ago with 1/2 cup. They of course still have lots of hay available. Thanks.
