You guys with horned animals, what minerals or food is the best for boosting horn growth? I see lots of antler boosting products for deer but haven't found anything for goats etc.

I would think that horn growth has more to do with genetics than anything else. I know with my Ibex than you can have 10 different goats and they all get the same feed and some will get longer horns than others. It is the same with antlered animals. You can feed the best of everything to one and if he doesn't have the genetics he is not going to grow the antlers another is.

Like Don said, Genetics Genetics Genetics! but it takes energy to grow Horn, Fat converts to Energy, High Fat Feed, not so much High Protein
