picturescrazy: I never understood why we waste gas to trim lawns when we could use goats and raise meat at the same time.
TheraTx: wait wait wait, gorillas don't eat goats do they?I was in a mexican restaurant for a birthday party once and we went past closing time. They didn't kick us out though. The staff did start cooking a whole goat right in front of us, head and all, boiled it.so i'm getting a kick out of this/true story
j.lunatic: picturescrazy: I never understood why we waste gas to trim lawns when we could use goats and raise meat at the same time.Old and busted: urban chickens. New hotness: urban goats.
Arkanaut: Or you could just kill the goats yourself. Or rent the area out to hunters.//goat is delicious.

New hotness: urban goats.I'd do it but Cleveland has lot size requirements. I don't have enough grass to feed two goats but enough room for them to be happy. I'd have no problem supplementing their diet with feed and my shed is more than big enough to comfortably house them. I'd just need to make minor improvements to keep it warm in the winter. I know not everyone wants goats but I'd let my next door neighbors borrow them for their lawn too.I realize I sound like a weirdo now but I think it'll be pretty common for our grandkids.

old_toole: Where did the whole "Then, when wintertime rolls around, the gorillas will simply freeze to death" come from???
smitton: The question was asked "why is goat meat not more popular in the states?" Entirely the federal government's fault. Under law, all meat of any kind must be inspected and stamped by a federal inspector. And the inspectors are species specific. A pig inspector cannot ok a chicken, etc. There are only a few goat meat inspectors nationwide so only a few facilities are licenced to slaughter goats, so the meat is hard to come by. However, most of us goat raisers sell the live animal directly to the consumers who then kill and prepare the animal by themselves. Goat is tasty, but if you want some, learn to dress it yourself.
