Can you feed baby goats baby formula?
Likewise, what milk do you feed baby goats?
If you have a goat in milk, even if it is not the mother of the kid you are raising, start there. Goats' milk is obviously the best choice to bottle feed if you have it. If you do not, we recommend whole cow's milk. This can come from either your own farm (if you have a milk cow) or just from the grocery story.
Subsequently, question is, how long do you bottle feed baby goats? Kids need milk for a minimum of two months. In the early years, we used to bottle feed for three to four months. But since we've learned that mama's milk makes them healthier, and they grow faster, we now bottle feed for five or six months.
Likewise, people ask, how do you feed baby goats?
Bottle feed the goat kid frequent, small meals of milk or milk replacer. Kid goats should be fed at least 4 times per day to avoid digestive issues until they are 30 days old. At this point you can reduce the number of daily feedings to 3. This mimics the natural nursing behavior of baby goats.
How much do you feed a newborn goat?
A healthy newborn goat will likely weigh between 8 and 11 pounds at birth. Feed 2 ounces of colostrum-replacer powder per 4 pounds of body weight. Plan to split the mixed solution into two or three feedings in the first 24 hours of life.
