Dairy & Meat Goat Feeds
Highly fortified feeds for superior performance, digestibility, palatability, and quality.
We have a line of feeds, premixes, and supplements formulated specifically for Goats. Many producers mistakenly use dairy cattle feeds for goats, but the requirements of the two species are very different, consequently the goats do not receive the proper levels of vitamins and minerals, as well as not enough protein or energy. For example, dairy cattle feeds provide only 1/10th the levels of Vitamin E and Selenium required in a Dairy Goat ration.
Rations provide all the correct required levels of vitamins, and minerals; and in fact, many of our formulations have much higher levels for improved performance of the animal. Extra Phosphorusis added for lactating animals and young stock. The levels of Iron and Zinc are higher for improved skin and hair condition, higher disease resistance, and reduced occurrences of anemia. Our Selenium and Vitamin E levels are the highest in the industry; proper levels reduce losses due to White Muscle Disease, reduce the incidence of retained placentas and breeding problems, and improve disease resistance. All of our Goat Feeds contain the correct copper level; our customers have never had a copper toxicity or deficiency while on our program.

FREE CHOICE MINERAL


GOAT MINERAL WITH DECCOX® + VITAMINS
Our own High Selenium, Free Choice Mineral formulated just for goats. Contains 27% Salt, 18% Calcium, 8% Phosphorus, Macro Minerals, Trace Minerals, Iodine, and Selenium. Each ¾th’s of an ounce of our goat mineral contains the maximum selenium level allowed by the FDA, at 0.70 mg. (Increased from 0.70 mg selenium/1oz.) This level of Selenium is higher than competitor’s. Our higher levels of zinc and iron are important for maintaining high growth rates, preventing anemia, and increasing resistance to disease. To prevent goiter and to aid in improvement of reproductive efficiency, Iodine is included. Zinc and Manganese levels are 1200 ppm each in all versions of Goat Mineral. Zinc plays a major role in an animal’s health and in maintaining skin and hair coat. Zinc is also important in maintaining hoof health, strength, and function. Manganese is important to reproductive performance. Inadequate Manganese causes delayed estrus and reduced conception rates. Goat Mineral contains the proper level of added copper in addition to Vitamins. All versions of Goat Mineral contain Magnesium, Potassium, Sulfur, and Cobolt. Many competing products lack magnesium and potassium. Does typically consume ½ to 1 ounce of mineral per day, or approximately 17# per year, equaling a cost/doe/ year of $8.16. No additional salt is needed. Contains decoquinate for the prevention and control of cocidiosis. Feed 30 days pre-kidding to does to avoid performance-reducing infections in the kids. One ounce/day provides 22.7 mg/100 lbs. of body weight of deccox.(Contains added Copper - Do not feed this product to sheep.)

Boer Goat Gestation & Lactation Feeding Programs -
• Controls coccidiosis and toxoplasmosis.
• Reduces cocci infection in kids.
• High Vitamin E & Selenium eliminates ‘weak’ kids.
• Program provides correct protein, iodine, trace minerals, selenium, minerals, and vitamins.

Our highly fortified feeds for gestating and lactating meat-type doe’s are available either as complete made up feeds or can be farm blended using our supplement. These feeds were designed specifically for meat—type goats and are very successful.

34R-240 SUPPLEMENT
A pelleted protein supplement containing Rumensin for prevention and control of coccidiosis and toxoplasmosis. Feed in late gestation (last 6 weeks) and in lactation. Feed 34R-240 at the rate of 1/4 lb. per doe/day to provide a high level (30 mg) of Rumensin. This will ‘clean up’ the doe so that she does not shed as much cocci at kidding, which lowers cocci infection in the goat kids! This 0.25 lb of 34R Supplement also provides very high Selenium (0.70 mg) and Vitamin E (50 IU/lb.). For about 8 cents per day 34 R cleans up cocci, prevents white muscle disease,toxoplasmosis, & provides selenium, minerals, and vitamins.
