Weigh your kid (goat) in pounds and multiply that number by 0.01 (1.0%) to get the amount of daily feed you should start your kid on.
Hay should be available free choice to start and then reduced as kids come on feed.
Over the next two to three weeks, gradually increase the feed until you are feeding the equivalent of 3-5.5% of your goat's bodyweight per day.
Feed by weight - not by volume.
Weigh the feed in the container you'll be using and be sure to subtract the weight of the container.
Provide your goat with salt free choice.
