Good Afternoon and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.

I believe that you are asking what is best to feed a pregnant fainting goat....this should consist of medium quality hay, moderate pasture time and free choice mineral block. A grain concentrate will need to be added over the last 6 weeks of gestation to ward off pregnancy ketosis and provide the protiens and minerals required for milk production. This grain concentrate should be 15% goat pellet.

Does that make sense to you?

Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please REPLY so I can clarify for you.
