Goats are naturally curious animals. While grazing, they are likely to nibble on anything, edible or not, in their path. It can be extremely difficult to maintain control over nutrition and the quality of milk, meat and fiber products on a goat farm. Growing fodder with a FodderPro Feed System will help farm and ranch owners gain control over the feeding regimen of their operation. Feeding fodder will ensure that goats get the nutrients they require without wasting additional energy on digestion. Fodder is highly digestible and packed with essential nutrients, making it an ideal supplement for any goat farm.

Fodder Benefits

Goats have a well-developed digestive system, however they still require energy to use feed to its full potential. Fodder closely replicates what goats would naturally forage for in the wild and is easy to digest, saving energy that would have been wasted on a less digestible feed. An improvement in feed efficiency will lead to higher quality production of milk, meat and fiber.

Consuming fresh fodder will provide several advantages to goats, including:

  • Faster weight gain and better quality meat
  • High-grade fiber
  • Improved milk production and quality
  • Improved hoof health
  • Improved fertility

Types of Feed

High in protein and energy, these sprouts will enhance the products produced from raising goats. They are also packed with calcium and minerals, so there is a reduced need for concentrates.

Alfalfa Clover

Naturally balanced in protein, energy and fiber, these sprouts are an excellent goat feed. Grains such as barley have only 5% less energy than corn and a low acid content. Feeding sprouted grain fodder will result in a healthier animal.
