Feed free choice to sheep or goats consuming adequate quantities of forage. Consumption will vary according to forage quality, forage availability and animal condition.
Follow these management practices: 1. Monitor body condition of sheep and goats on a regular basis. 2. Recommended feeding rates should be adjusted depending on animal body condition. 3. When making a ration change, allow 7 to 10 days for animals to adjust to the new ration. 4. Provide adequate feeder space for each animal. 5. Provide mineral and salt free choice. 6. Provide fresh, clean water near the feeding area. In groups of sheep and goats there are certain animals that experience chronic bloat, or other digestive disturbances and consequently, are poor performers. In addition, excess feed consumption, severe weather changes resulting in erratic feed consumption and poorly managed feeding practices, can increase the incidence of bloat in all sheep and goats. If bloating occurs, management practices should be reviewed and your veterinarian consulted.
