Daily lives of our Goats

Our goats come to us atĀ  4 days to 1 week old, it is a prerequisite that they stay with their mothers until collected so that they get their all important colostrum and which gives them the best possible start and builds their natural immunity.

Once here they are fed on milk replacer and live in small groups of 6-8 until they are well established on a specially milled starter goat pellet feed, which Paul has developed in conjunction with Irwins Feeds inĀ Antrim.

They start life here on four milk feeds daily and are weaned as they eat more solids which are on offer from 2 weeks of age.

They frolic the day away on fresh straw beds, eating adlib “haylige” and their special diet of Goat food.
