Goats for land clearing
We recently aquired a handy-man special on 5 acres. A lot of time and money is going into the house to make it liveable. Previous owners forclosed and took EVERYTHING (water heaters, a/c, interior doors, lights, faucets, etc..) My husband and I would like to work on getting the 5 acres cleared. With time and money being an issue we are considering goats. Here are some of my questions- What kind? While the pygmies are cute, will they be productive? Should we look for a meat goat? How old can they be before the are unedible? Is that even a problem? How many? Property isn't fenced, what do you recomend? Can you tie a goat out? Thanks for your interest and help.
