    It is time for my Christmas tree to leave the house. Can I feed my Frazier fir to the goats? Probably not the whole thing at one time since this is not a part of their regular diet, but a few branches at a time?

    I hope everyone is well- I haven't been on here for a long time due to an overload of work, but I still love my goats as much as ever!

    Some trees from commercial lots have been sprayed with various chemicals. I wouldn't feed those trees to my goats.

    Unless you can absolutely verify that the trees haven't been sprayed with any chemicals I wouldn't feed them to any of my animals. (That's always been frustrating to me because my llamas LOVE pine trees...)

    I am heading out to pick up trees from the side of the road.... I have never worried about them being sprayed with anything. By now anything sprayed on them has washed off or worn off. I do this every year with no ill effects

    we don't spray our trees around here and I feed them every limb I can find - "goats on crack" is what I call them. They see me coming with the limbs and they start "feening" :ROFL:
