So, I am getting ready to put ads up places looking for someone with a couple acres I can use to raise my goats. I do not really want to do this but I just don't think my cousins want to do this anymore. I am scared of animals getting sick out there and not being treated right away (as they would be if I were there all the time). Not trying to talk badly of them, they are hard workers. . . . sometimes. But they just don't seem to have their heart in goat-raising as much as I do. . . . and I am nervous for my animals sometimes. Anyways, I live in town with a really nice set-up for goats but not big enough for as many goats as I'd like to have. So, how many have to drive to where your goats are kept? If you do not own the property, how do you work out leasing or paying to use someone else's property? I am thinking of advertising a partial lease of healthy, disease-free herd. I would provide feed (hay, grain, minerals, feeders, etc.) I would also come out at least once a day, in the afternoon as I volunteer most every morning. If they could feed hay in the morning and then I'd come and feed grain, check on everyone in the afternoon. How does this plan sound to you all? I would only ask of the person to feed hay and maybe grain in the morning, I would do everything else. We live pretty close (about 5-10 minutes) to an agricultural area, so I would love to find someone there. Anyways, any suggestions, ideas, or thoughts? I've never done this before but really need to figure something out for my goats and I cannot imagine having to sell them. **Edited to re-word some things.
