It has the 2 to 1 calcium to phosphorus balance, ammonium chloride (AC), and 16% protein. I used calf manna with 25 % protein when my 3 month old got sick. He picked the weight back up nicely.
I do not have acreage and my goats are supplemented with Show Edge Goat Feed most of their lives. I have 3 goats with and age spread of 4 years between each. By design I always have a young one growing and an older packer.
My Mana Pro Goat Minerals which has AC in it are cut in half with kelp meal which has 4% protein in it.

curious on your ration of the show goat feed??  simply following the instructions on the bag which follows the guidleines of 3% to 5% of bodyweight?
