goat granola treat

goat granola
I recently posted on our farm facebook page about my goat granola treat, the reviews are coming in and it appears there are lots of goats out there that are now fans of my granola :) I don't want to leave anyone out - so here is my *recipe*

Goat Granola Treat: 
  • 5lbs of whole grains (right now I'm using barley and rolled oats)
  • Enough molasses to hold it together. It usually takes about 1/4-1/2 cup
  • 2 tablespoons of kelp 
  • 1/4 cup of flax seed. I mix it all together in a feed bucket and cover it with a lid.
So the girls are receiving a fresh granola snack, I've found that not making more than a weeks worth at a time is ideal. You can use any combo of grains - the above combo is also sheep loved and approved! The only grains we feed this time of year are whole grains and we never feed a sweet feed mix so this treat is very much anticipated and loved by all the girls. And it not only tastes great but it's nutritious too!

top dressing their grain with a bit of a granola = happy goats
if your fingers are sticking together and covered in goat spit..you're doing it right
If any of y'all have any variations or reviews from your goats, please post them. I would love to hear the feedback! Cheers to a happy herd ~
