Feeding Recommendations for Goat Kids
The following feeding recommendations are for goat kids that do not receive any other colostrum. They are based on body weight, but it should be noted that specific needs will vary depending on environmental conditions. When given in each of three feedings in the first 18 hours of life these feeding recommendations are designed to provide a newborn goat kid with the energy needed for maintenance plus gain under indoor [still, dry] conditions, or with maintenance and lower gain under outdoor conditions.
Newborn goat kids should receive their first feeding of colostrum as soon after birth as possible, and not later than 6 hours of age. Undersized, weak or stressed goat kids may also benefit from continued feeding of HEADSTART® HiCaCafter the first day of age.
Mixing: Use a whisk to mix each feeding into water that is hot to the touch 55°C (130°F). Avoid water temperatures above 55°C (130°F). Hot water and vigorous mixing are required because of the high levels of natural fat and proteins. Feeding – After mixing, HEADSTART® HiCal can be fed by nipple bottle or oesophageal tube. The liquid can be stored refrigerated for up to 72 hr, and before feeding should be re-warmed to 40°C (104°F) by immersing in warm water.
