Similarly, it is asked, can you feed cows milk to baby goats?
After they receive colostrum (Mother's first milk) For the first 24 hours of life, bottle fed kids should be fed fresh (or frozen) goat's milk if at all possible. If you cannot get fresh goat's milk, you can use whole (not 2%) cows milk from the store.
Similarly, what do baby goats eat? Offer hay, grain, time in the pasture, and fresh water to allow your baby goat to start eating these foods instead of milk. Most healthy goats can start to be weaned at about thirty days old. A goat can start to be weaned at about twenty-five to thirty pounds or double its birth weight.
Also, how long do baby goats drink milk?
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.
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.
