Molassed Goat Mix Appetising fully balanced molassed mix for goats of alltypes and ages

  • With best bruised oats and other cereals, carefully micronised to improve digestibility which helps reduce the risk of digestive upsets. These supply calories from soluble carbohydrate and fermentable fibre.
  • Includes quality digestible fibre from grassmeal to help with rumen function to minimise acidosis.
  • Quality protein for muscle and tissue repair and development as well as milk and hair production.
  • Fully balanced with vitamins and minerals for health and well-being.
  • Include Sel-Plex® organic selenium to support fertility, immunity and muscle function. Much modern pasture and forage is selenium deficient so ensuring goats receive a good supply of this vital mineral will help support general good health and be passed to kids via the milk.
  • With a blend of Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids for a shiny coat.
  • With a light molasses coating
Feeding Recommendations

  • Molassed Goat Mix should be fed as required alongside forage based on the guidelines in the table above.
  • Divide the concentrate ration into two or more small meals.Make any changes to diet gradually over 7 to 14 days to avoid upsetting the bacterial population of the rumen.
  • Ad lib forage (grass, hay, haylage) should be available year-round and should comprise a minimum of 40 - 50% of the total daily ration.
  • Forage is best fed in a raised rack to satisfy a goat’s need to browse rather than graze
  • Avoid using haynets for goats as they tend to get themselves caught in them
  • Feeding hay or fresh forage before giving concentrates will initiate chewing and saliva production and aid bicarbonate production. This buffers the acids of the rumen to help maintain a stable rumen pH which is especially important at the morning feeding.
  • Mouldy feed or forage is potentially lethal to goats as the mould can upset the bacterial population of the rumen.
  • Chopped alfalfa products, such as Alfalfa Blend from the Baileys Horse Feed range, are ideal sources of additional good quality protein and fibre.
