    I have 2 Nigerian Dwarf goats that are 9 weeks old. How much grain should they get a day and how often? Thanks in advance.

    Our nds kids don't get a ton. Probably only enough to finish in 5 or 10 minutes? Mainly consume hay.

    Hello :) I'm new to the site. My Nubian herd have been with me 12 years. Grain can cause problems to my herd. I feed alfalfa pellets three times a day enough for all to eat about 5 or 10 minutes. I sprinkle the pellets with loose Goat minerals. I feed about half a scoop of whole oats on the milking stand. My does also have hay and pastures to forage on. Hope that helps!
