This friday we plan on processing out goats and sheep. Now, I know there is a market for beef heart with fish food, but what about goat and sheep heart? I was thinking I could take a few of the hearts and sell them in the SnS. I won't post a picture as some might find it vulgar and things of that nature is against the forum rules. But just wondering, is there a market, I am asking if you had the money just given to you, would you buy a heart? My fish love it, from cichlids to ember tetra, to WCMM, they all love it but would you use it or just countinue to use flakes or normal fish food? This is not a sales thread so please do not PM asking about it unless I get a thread started in the SnS.
i know most people that do their own mixes for discus on Simply do it with beefheart strictly due to the cheaper price tag. if you could sell it at a competative rate you can sell A LOT of it over there, trust me.
We breed them for multiple things, like hides, milk, meat, and their personailty. I want to train a few to pull a cart but there are many people who hopped the border and came here for the orchards that would love some goat.
Once, one of out goats was painted, somebody snuck in the middle of night and painted it. Not cool, turns out it was a prank done by a friend...we chastised him for that.
if it were local, I would buy it, for my ferrets, not my fishes. A full diet for ferrets is fairly hard to maintain and since commercial ferret foods are crap I make my own food, organs are a great ingredient. you wouldn't believe how many commercially suplieed "ferret" foods boost their protein numbers with rice or soy, ferrets cannot digest plant protein at all. I drop a whole chicken sans feathers in a crock pot for 10 hours along with whatever organs I can get from the butcher. then puree (bones and all) and freeze. I have yet to find a ferret that wont eat it. the bones and organs are super important for ferrets as a lot of the nutrients they derive from foods is in whats already digested in the preys intestines, and the bone particles help reduce hairballs.
