So much good info! We have 6 lovely does. 3 are kids.
We just watched a webinar last night on pasture management for goats.
For pasture health, they recommended 75% winter forage and 25% summer. That's probably because there is so much summer growth so a smaller are is needed.
She recommended mixing in clover, especially white clover since it can handle intense grazing. Growing a blend of at least 25% white clover increased the crude protein in the pasture by 20%-30% when compared to fertilizing with nitrogen. She said red clover tends to get browsed out.
Turnips and radishes are great cool forage, however they are low in fiber.
Her goats didn't like the Sunn Hemp.
This webinar ws offered through local extension office. Check with your local office. They have likley done trial growings to determine what grows best in our area for the health of the goats and soil.
