Description

Meat goats are ruminants and get the nutrients they need through a wide variety of feedstuffs. Because of this, producers must thoroughly understand digestive physiology and nutrition before they can develop an efficient and economical nutrition program for meat goats. Growth rate, reproductive performance, animal well-being, and economic efficiency of a goat operation all depend on the herd nutrition plan. This publication describes the digestive system and nutrient requirements of meat goats and the relationships between nutrition, animal productivity, and producer profitability.
