Good Afternoon! Allot of things have been finished this last month a volunteer crew came up last weekend to put up the new fence to give the goats another ½+ acres and increases their grazing area allowing us to cut back on grains until after the first frost when Grain and hay will take the place of the grazing pasture.
I hate to sound like a broken record, but we have cut as much as can and operating on the bare minimum. We had one nursing home event in January then COVID-19 shut everything down and people lost their jobs and donations from our regular donators plummeted. Even with us not doing events because of the pandemic we still must take care of the animals, WE NEED YOUR HELP
Straw – $75.00 This will last us for 12 months by buying in bulk.
Feed is a little different situation because of the types of feed needed.
350lbs – Whole Corn $6.04 per #50 Bag
400lbs – Cracked Corn $7.19 per #50 Bag
250lbs – Egg Laying Pellets $8.99 per #50 Bag
