Feeding goats is more than offering them a lot of feedstuffs, but it is giving them the balance of proper nutrients for maintenance, growth, reproduction, and milk or meat production. This session will cover the basics of how a goat's digestive system works, nutrient requirements, understanding feed composition, and how to balance a ration. This information will be of help to the small producer up through large operations, because proper feeding is the key to successful goat management.
