Baking Soda? : LUSENET : Dairygoats : One Thread

I see that some of you give your goats baking soda? What is it used for?

It buffers the acid in their rumen. They make it naturally, but if they're getting a lot of grain, they sometimes can't make enough. Provide it free choice and they will eat only what they need.
