The feeding levels of goats reared in Bonli, Sawai Madhopur district, would depend on various factors such as the purpose of rearing (Dairy or meat production), breed of goats, age, weight, and available feed resources. However, provide with some general guidelines for feeding goats: Forage: Forages such as grasses, legumes, and browse is the primary source of nutrition for goats. In Bonli, the availability of forage may vary depending on the season and local vegetation. Provide a sufficient quantity of fresh forage to meet the nutritional needs of the goats. Goats typically consume around 3-4% of their body weight in forage daily. Concentrates: In addition to forage, goats may require concentrated feed to meet their nutritional requirements, especially during lactation, growth, or if they are being raised for meat production. Concentrates can include grains, oil cakes, and protein-rich supplements. The quantity and composition of concentrates will depend on the specific nutritional needs of the goats. Mineral Supplements: Provide a mineral supplement to ensure that the goats receive essential minerals such as calcium, phosphorus, and trace elements like copper, zinc, and selenium. The availability and composition of minerals in the local soil and forage should be considered when determining the appropriate mineral supplementation. Feeding Management: It is important to divide the daily feed into multiple meals throughout the day. This helps in better digestion and utilization of nutrients. Also, ensure proper storage of feed to prevent spoilage and contamination.
