Well I Have A New Job

Recommended Posts

My wife said Meat is getting too high. So now I'm to build Sheds for Chickens and Rabbits.

I asked her about putting up Fence for Goats? No they take up too much time. ?????? Last time I knew might as well have a few Goats because it don't take that much longer to take care of them unless you are milking.

A goat will feed you many more meals than a chicken or a rabbit.  Less maint. too.

Plus you don't have to go to the MFA to feed them.

We had 40 head of Goats once. We let them breed when ever but have them Kid in March will be better.

Problem with goats is that you have to like eating them. They can be a challenging taste for some folks.

I've ate plenty of Goat but they was so high dollar didn't justify butchering.

It is crazy all Butcher Shops are booked for over a year. We have Hogs ready to butcher now so probably have to do our own. Hatchery in town is not taking New Orders.

Seems some better learn how to cut up their own Deer.

I have always processed my own deer. Would do the same with goats, cattle (need heavier hoist system ;)), etc. Not sure about hogs. If I were to skin them, then it would not be a problem except again the hoist system for a big hog. Where I have a concern is the equipment needed for scalding off the hair to be able to process the hams.

Butcher plenty Beef and Hogs.

Thing with Hogs and skinning is the curring , skin keeps salt from getting into the meat.

Learn too you don’t want to be skinning next to a blind woman with a knife. Best stand back let her have at.

Butchered a Goat one time my Son got mad at me because he had done made a pet out of it.

One thing about Goats you can raise them around here on brush and rocks.

Baby chicks $3 apiece, Rabbits $12 apiece. Then have neighbors dogs. That is why I got rid of the ones I had.
