GOAT FEEDS

Despite similarities to sheep & cattle, goats exhibit significant differences in grazing habits, physical activities, water requirement, feed selection, milk composition, carcass composition, metabolic disorders and parasites. The Nutrient requirement of goats may therefore justifiably be treated separately from those of other ruminants. (NRC 1981)   These facts have been the basis on which the under mentioned feeds have been designed, and the ingredients chosen

[702]  DENGIE DAIRY GOAT PELLETS 4mm
Protein 18.0% Oil 5.6% Fibre 14.5%  Ash 8.6% ME(rum) 11.5mj/kg DM

A superior product designed in conjunction with Dengie Crop Driers specifically for the Otley College of Agriculture, and other commercial producers of Goats Milk and Cheese with Charnwood licensed as sole manufacturers.  The main ingredient, Dengie Dried Lucerne is a forage with the nutritive value of concentrates, but without the problems associated with concentrate feeding.  This helps to maintain acetate:proprionate ratios in correct balance, ensuring high butterfat yields.  The production of this ration in pellet form stops selective eating of individual ingredients, thus ensuring that the goat receives a scientifically balanced diet.

This ration has consistently provided top yields of top quality milk for customers supplying to Marks & Spencer and other similar outlets. Extreme care in the choice of ingredients ensures complete palatability and, therefore, production.

Protein 16.0%  Oil  3.9%  Fibre  6.5%   Ash  6.9%  ME(rum)  12.8mj/kg DM
