There are many options for grains that you can feed your goats to supplement their pasture/hay diet. In dairy goats, grains will typically help increase milk production and help goats maintain body weight better. In this section we will discuss some of the various types/brands that can be bought in Georgia and the pros/cons of each.
*If you are planning on consuming your milk or selling for human or pet consumption, please check with your local vet to see if the medications in the feed pass through into the milk.
Increasing protein and fat consumption for lactating animals will help increase milk production although goats have difficulty processing grain products that have a protein content greater than 17%.
