So, I have been doing some side work for a farmer on and off these last couple of months. Interesting, since I know nothing, really, of farming. He raises several crops, and most of the standard barnyard animals. He seems to have a soft spot for his goats, though. He's got some for sale, very reasonable @ $100/pair. Now, like I said, I'm no farmer, but it has dawned on me that if the SHTF, farming your own food is what's really going to do it for you. Not that goats are food..........For now, I'm half interested in them because; 1. I have an overabundance of horrible brushy, spiny, prickly, viney crap I can't control. I'm told goats LOVE all that stuff. It's salad to them. 2. While the goats are keeping my "salad" under control, I'm interested to see if I have what it takes to deal with this sort of thing. He says goats are easy to care for, don't cost a lot, etc. BUT, I also have a lot of projects pending, house things need doing and on and on. Thoughts?
