Abstract

The nutritional needs of goats are similar to those of sheep. They both require energy, protein, vitamins, minerals and water to survive and be productive. For optimum performance these nutrients should be supplied constantly and in relatively fixed proportions. An excess of protein, vitamins or minerals will not make up for a shortfall in energy, nor will a shortfall in protein, vitamins or minerals be made up by an excess of energy. Goats' nutrient requirements depend on their size, whether the goat is pregnant, lactating, growing or just maintaining body functions.
