My husband has brought home a couple of bags of grain for our herd. We use a horse muesli because of its copper content, which is important mineral for our goats. There is no "goat " food available here in Sweden and  the sheep pellets lack the proper amount of copper.

There is no “goat ” food available here in Sweden and the sheep pellets lack the proper amount of copper. We mix equal amounts of muesli and oats for our does and babies.
