I have been looking around and noticed that nobody else seems to do anything like what we do so, I figured I would share in hopes that it may work for you as well.. I live in the desert where we don't have much for our goats to browse on and we were always seeing piles of brush and what not in peoples yards. We came up with the idea to put up fliers that we would pick up leaves, scrap brush and tree trimming and haul it off for a small price. We listed our number and said for a list of what we will pick up just call. Our only real rule about it was no poisonous plants and everything has to be fresh cut that day or the day before. We have been picking up peoples brush ever since and we don't loose any money on gas because of the fee we charge. A lot of times we even make a few bucks after gas costs :leap: We also contacted a few of the local landscaping company’s and arranged it so we can pick up all the brush and what not they have (free of coarse)that we can feed our goats. Not only did we cut WAY back on feed cost but we are even making a little profit and pretty much getting free feed =). Our goats get huge variety of food and they seem to love all the goodies!! We have also arranged it with the local bread man that all his expired and not moldy breads, buns, rolls, pita bread, etc come to us and he gets half off his goat each year lol which he really is getting a deal seems how no matter what he is out otherwise because all he can do is give it away or throw it out. Then during spring and summer we get to cut down all the bamboo we want along the river for free Anyhow, that what we did to cut back on feed cost's and it has worked out great for us! So, maybe it would work out great for you if you tried it in your area!!
