|It's toxic to sheep JT. The goats need a small amount of it in their diet. Don't know about horses. You were lucky that your goats didn't get sick when you had to change their feed back and forth. The 'pros' advise changing goat feed very slowly to avoid their getting sick. I try to stay within the same range of protein and trace elements when I have had to change their food. I do know that I will have to make some adjustment when they come down here. In NY they got a custom mix that was milled to my friend Jim's specs. I haven't yet found a feed mill that will do that for me since I only buy one cubit ton at a time. I know that the Dumor 100% goat feed is very similar to what I used except for vitamin E and selinium. They had less. I understand that Tn is low on selinium so that will continue to be a concern for me here. The Dumor is good but it cost more than the custom milled stuff I was using so I'm not happy to have to pay that! Last time I did it was running $15./50 pound bag. Custom was $7.00/100 pounds.
