Commercial weight gain rations
« on: April 25, 2013, 04:25:02 PM »
I've got close to 30 wethers and bucklings that I am going to start weaning soon. What is a good weight gain ration?

We use an 18 percent gainer.  Goats are much different than cattle as they build lean muscle and don't really marble, their fat will usually lay inside the carcass. High protein with fiber and limited forage will get you .5 to .75 lbs per day sometimes more depending on your genetics.

Yes 18 percent protein.  We use Kent or a custom gainer.
