For the Love of Goats
One of the most common questions I get from readers is, “what should I feed my goats?” But there is no short answer. The reason you hear so many different answers is because the right answer can be different for different goats.
In this episode, ruminant nutritionist Laura Marie Kramer, Director of National Accounts for Standlee Premium Western Forage, talks about alfalfa and grass hay, as well as the difference between pellets and long-stemmed forage. But first we get nerdy about the whole ruminant digestive tract and how it is different from monogastrics. For more information on feeding goats, see the links below.
To celebrate the launch of the new podcast, Standlee has agreed to give 3 of my listeners a coupon for their choice of a free Standlee product, such as a bag of hay pellets or bagged hay. And after listening to this episode, you’ll know which one you need — because you know, the answer is, “it depends!” (Sorry you missed the giveaway, but there will be more in future episodes!)
