Depending on the animal species and their performance concentrate is fed all year round especially during autumn and winter when grass is scarce. Concentrate is necessary to get the animals in good condition for shows, during pregnancy and lactation. Kasper Faunafood has a range of feed to meet the needs of these small ruminants.

Sheep
In autumn and winter, during the mating season and during lactation an additional nutrient supplementation is required. Copper is toxic to sheep therefore it is not be added to the concentrate.

Deer
Deer kept within an enclosure should be fed with deer pellets in addition to a good quality of hay to keep them in a good condition. This concentrate should contain all elements deer normally find in the wild. The deer pellet is also recommended as a supplementary feed for deer in wildfile sanctuaries during the winter.

Goats
The only way to bring goats in a good condition for breeding, inspection or milk production is to feed them in the best possible way. Therefore supplementation with concentrate is a must. Goat pellets contain all necessary nutrients to guarantee a good condition. This feed is also very suitable as production feed for dairy goats.

Alpacas and llamas
Alpacas and llamas belong to the family of the camelids. They come originally from South America, but feel at home in the Dutch climate, provided they can seek shelter in bad weather.

Feeding advice 

  • The quantity of concentrate depends on the roughage intake.
  • When feeding take into account the condition of the animal.
  • Fresh and clean water should always be available .
  • Offer animals staying outside during frost and snow extra concentrate and roughage.

The nutritional requirements of young animals are different from those of the adult animal. In order to help young animals to overcome the first period of rapid growth Kasper Faunafood developed special feeds to meet their special requirements. This way young animals become healthy and vital adults.

Lamb pellets can be fed as from 2 weeks after birth.

Below you will find the various types of feeds for adult sheep, goats and deer. The assortment is divided into pellets and muesli.

Especially in autumn and winter, during the mating season and during lactation sheep need an additional nutrient supplementation. The pellet for sheep meets the requirement of vitamins, minerals and trace elements. The sheep pellet Lacta has an extra high energy value, which might be very important when sheep need a helping hand. Sheep do not tolerate copper. Therefore this element is not added to the concentrate.

Goat pellets are essential to bring and to keep goats in a good condition for breeding and inspection. The pellet is also very suitable as production feed for dairy goats.

The rich goat muesli, along with roughage, provides a complete menu which will not lead to fat goats. This muesli can also perfectly be combined with Kasper Faunafood goat pellets.

Finally, there is also a perfect pellet for deer, containing all elements to keep them in a good condition. This concentrate has to supply them with all nutrients they normally find themselves in the wild. The deer pellet is also recommended as a supplementary feed for deer in wildfile sanctuaries during the winter.

Alpacas are ruminants that need a sober feeding. Roughage is on the basis of the menu, preferably in the form of grass and hay. You may offer roughage without limitation. In order to get all necessary vitamins and minerals the menu has to be supplemented by the Kasper Faunafood Alpaca pellet. Kasper Faunafood Alpaca pellets distinguish themselves from other power feed by a high content of vitamins, minerals and trace elements. Also the raw fiber content is high, while the protein content is low.
