Kelp For Goats

Supplementing Goats With Kelp Meal – The Giving Goat ...

Kelp meal is a particularly rich source of minerals, trace elements, and other nutrients and is an ideal human health food, animal feed supplement, and plant fertilizer. 

The use of Kelp meal for goats is suggested as follows:
Provide kelp meal free choice to all goats, but especially young kids as it is rich in selenium. The kelp meal should be placed in such a way that it will not become soiled or contaminated by the elements. Your goats will ingest the kelp meal as they see fit - they seem to know when they need it.

It is also a common practice to add kelp meal to custom feed mixes but it should be noted, copper and sulphur are recommended to be added to the mineral supplementation in addition to the kelp meal. Depending upon your goats specific mineral requirements, a standard mixture of kelp meal would be:

  • 1 pound per every 50 pounds of typical goat feed.
  • If you do not wish to use Kelp Meal free choice, offer 2 Tablespoons per goat in their daily grain.

At AppleJo Farms, we order our Organic Kelp Meal from the local MFA in 50 lb. bags.

While we use an excellent free choice mineral, we noticed some goats with missing patches of hair and a dull coat. We added kelp to their daily breakfast and what a nice difference it makes!
