Premium Goat has proven to be very successful as a supplement designed especially for meat and fibre goats.
Despite their similarity to other grazing animals, goats exhibit significant differences from sheep and cattle in their grazing habits, feed selection, water requirements, physical attributes, milk composition, carcass composition, metabolic disorders and parasites. So, the nutrient requirements for goats, needs to be met quite differently from other ruminants.
Goat feed intakes differ from sheep and cattle, lactating and growing goats can and will consume between, 3.5% and 5% of bodyweight , which means that this large intake in relation to body mass, allows the animal to consume large quantities of low quality forage. With the supply of concentrated minerals and vitamins, along with the goats ability to select high quality parts of plants, makes it possible to maintain goats successfully on poorer pastures.
Premium Goat also contains a specific source of natural energy and high Zinc and Vitamin A levels, the efficient utilization of nutrients depends on an adequate supply of energy. Energy deficiency retards kid growth, delays puberty, reduces fertility, and will depress milk production.
Goats are more active and travel greater distances than sheep, which increases energy requirements.
Goats have a requirement for minerals as well as vitamins, Zinc is essential for goats. Deficiency symptoms include, reduced feed intake, weight loss, parakeratosis, stiff joints, excessive salivation, swelling of the feet, small testicles in males and low libido.
