  • Feed only clean, fresh and dry fodder.
  • Always have fresh water for goats to drink at any time.
  • Clean the feeding trough and water bucket every day.
  • Give lots of different feeds such as grasses and legumes, tree leaves and fresh kitchen remains.
  • Give chopped mixed feeds to make sure the goats eat everything and do not waste feed.
  • Feed goats at least 3 times a day and at the same time every day.
  • Put some feed in the feed trough or rack or hang up some feed to be eaten overnight.
  • If you use molasses to make feed taste better do not use too much it will make feed sticky.
  • Dusty feeds and concentrates should be wetted a little.
  • Provide fresh and clean water daily.  There should always be water in the bucket.
  • Provide a Mineral Lick (block) always to all goats.
  • Do not feed too much leguminous feed such as Desmodium.
  • Mix feeds with grass, hay, straw or Napier to balance.
  • Only 1/3 of the days feed can be leucaenia, do not feed too much leucaenia, it can poison the goats.
