Can you substitute 16-20% goat feed for more expensive deer feed..I know minerals are lacking in the goat feed..But can't you make up that in a mineral block..Goat feed half the price of deer protein

I don't know where you buy your "Goat Feed" and I do not know what brand of Deer protein you are comparing it to. But I have never seen it at half the cost.

I can't comment on the relative nutritional values, but I can definitively say that the deer eat it. My dads goat feeders used to attract deer like flies to a trashcan. They're also very fond of the supplement pellets my dad uses for his emu's.

I found a feed mill in Gorman Texas you can buy deer protein for 359 a ton..That's about 9$ for 50# sounds like a great deal to me

I was just wondering where you can buy goat feed for half as much as those for deer. I feed "Beef Grower" to my Ibex. It is around $8 per sack.I mix L&E Exotic pellets with it. They are around $9 per bag.. I have a few Ibex kids I feed a mixture of that and purina Goat Chow". It is close to $20 per bag. I bought some cheap Sheep and goat pellets a while back and if memory serves me they were around $9 a sack. I am just wondering where I can get goat pellets for around say $6 a sack? I am not excited or anything just looking to save some money.

I looked up some prices.L&E "Pasture Goat" is $9.30 a bag. Purina Sheep and Goat is $12. Goat pellets from Tractor Supply is $13. I did not buy any Deer Protein pellets in 2016 but from L&E in 2015 they were around $11 a bag. And Purina Goat mineral is $15 for a 25# bag. And I forgot to add that I have been adding oats to the feed to give them extra selenium. I had a few of the Ibex that seemed to be a little weak in the lower foot joint and the oats has seemed to help.

Same here.. you would need to get a better quality goat feed to measure up to deer feed... even the cheaper noble goat feed I get is close to the same price as deer

Im sure prices will vary in different areas also... the copper, phosphors, calcium and im sure other requirements would be different between the two... ammonium chloride and sometimes Decoquinate is added to goat feed... how big of a toll this would have on freerange deer with plenty browse im not to sure but id rather not feed medicated feed either way imo..
