Managing weight gains to meet this goal can improve profitability. Vitamin K and the B vitamins are also manufactured by the microorganisms. At least 4 to 6 weeks prior to breeding, bucks should be condition scored. The intestines absorb amino acids, sugars, minerals, fats and other nutrients from digested feed. There is an increase in nutrient absorption by the udder tissue and increased mobilization of minerals like Ca, P and Mg.
Macrominerals are the minerals most nutritionists balance for in a ration because they are usually deficient without supplementation. The reticulum honeycomb structure is the second area and is just below the opening of the esophagus. Some research has found additional zinc can increase sperm counts and motility. This is the time when additional feed is necessary. Since goats are ruminants, like cows, sheep, and deer, they have a unique ability to digest roughages containing a great deal of fiber. If the doe does not respond to the additional grain, she may have reached her genetic potential for milk production. The nutrients considered in diet formulation are energy, protein, minerals, vitamins and water. Vitamin K and the B vitamins are also manufactured by the microorganisms. Figure 2 illustrates the relationship between feed intake, bodyweight and milk production. As milk increases, increase feed by 1 pound of grain for every additional 2 pounds of milk. Milkers may need to gain extra weight to replenish body stores for the next lactation. If the doe has a body condition score of 3. The term "crude protein" is used to measure the amount of nitrogenous compounds in feed. The ration fed will vary with the quality of forage available. Depending upon the age of doe, peak lactation generally occurs between week 6 and 9 after kidding. After parturition, the doe has a high nutrient demand to support milk production. This is a critical time for does because they need to be challenged, but dry matter intake lags behind the milk demand. Doelings can be bred at approximately 70 pounds and 7 months of age. The size of the gut and the absorptive capacity increases to allow for greater absorption of nutrients. Bucks Bucks can be fed the dry doe ration if necessary. Early Lactation For does, early lactation ranges from 0 to 90 days milking. Fiber is broken down by microorganisms and provides a source of energy to a ruminant. Several things occur to meet this demand. The fat soluble vitamins are stored in the fat or lipid portion of feed and include vitamins A, D, E and K. Mid to Late Lactation Peak dry matter intake is reached in mid lactation and is approximately equal to nutrient requirements for milk production. Protein is made up of amino acids.
